Scholarships Awarded for Students to Attend a Private School


The Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund has announced today that they have awarded a total of 670 scholarships including 219 new scholarships for the 2017-2018 school year.   The eligibility scale for these scholarships is based on the National School Lunch Program and all of the families receiving the scholarship are at the 270% poverty level or below. 


The Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund (NOSF) provides privately funded scholarships to students from low-income families in grades K-8 to attend a private school or for homeschool expenses.   Students can receive up to $1,500 per year for tuition or $500 for homeschool expenses.  Families must reside in Allen, Crawford, Defiance, Erie, Fulton, Hancock, Henry, Huron, Lucas, Ottawa, Paulding, Putnam, Richland, Sandusky, Seneca, Van Wert, Williams, Wood and Wyandot and are required to pay a minimum of $500 towards their tuition. 


Julie Thomas said this about her children’s NOSF scholarships to attend Christ the King School, “The Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund has given my children the opportunity to continue their education in an environment that nurtures their spiritual growth and academic excellence.  With the help of these scholarships my family can maintain stability in an otherwise tumultuous time of our lives, and we are so thankful for that.”


Interested families can find more information about the program and apply online on the NOSF website at www.nosf.org.  For more information please contact Ann Riddle, Executive Director of the Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund at (419) 720-7048.


NOSF is a partner with the Children’s Scholarship Fund (CSF).  CSF provides scholarships to families in need so they can choose the private school that best meets their children’s needs.  Every dollar raised locally gets matched by CSF which provides additional dollars for scholarships.  Since the program began, more than 14,000 students have been awarded a NOSF Scholarship.
