NC Opportunity Scholarship

North Carolina offers three programs that expand school choice for eligible students in kindergarten through 12th grade. The Opportunity Scholarship, Disabilities Grant, and Education Savings Account can cover tuition and required fees at a participating nonpublic school. In addition, the Disabilities Grant and Education Savings Account can cover certain other expenses related to educating a child with a disability. The award amounts, eligibility requirements, and application timelines differ. For more information, see the side- by-side summary of the Opportunity Scholarship, Disabilities Grant, and Education Savings Account programs or click the program links below.

The 2019-20 new student application for all three K12 Programs will open on February 1. Apply via MyPortal. Click here for MyPortal assistance. None of the programs consider students on a first-come, first-served basis, however all have a priority deadline for applications.
