  • Scholarship Description
  • The Oklahoma Equal Opportunity Education Scholarships program was enacted in 2011 and launched in 2013. The program gives individuals and businesses a 50 percent tax credit for contributions made to nonprofit organizations that provide school scholarships to students who meet the income and/or zoning requirements.

    For students without an Individualized Education Plan (IEP), scholarships may be worth up to $5,000, or 80 percent of the average per-pupil expenditure in the assigned public school district, whichever is greater. For students with special needs who attended a public school with an IEP, the scholarship is worth up to $25,000.

    Students are eligible if they either live in families with incomes up to 300 percent of the free and reduced-price lunch program ($134,589 for a family of four) or attend or live in the attendance zone of a public school designated as "in need of improvement." Once a student has received a scholarship, that student and his or her siblings remain eligible until high school graduation or age 21.

    For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
