Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund Information for Students and Their Families

Thank you for your interest in the Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund! We provide need-based scholarships to families throughout northwest Ohio, growing minds and creating futures for young people with tuition assistance that enables them to attend the independent K-8 schools of their choice.  In order to receive a scholarship, parents or guardians must apply for the annual lottery. If their name is drawn, they submit proof of income and select a school for their child. Once a family is selected to receive a scholarship, they can renew it each year until their children graduate from 8th grade, as long as they meet the attendance requirements and are current on their portion of the tuition.

Our experience shows that NOSF recipients are motivated to succeed in school and in life. A recent survey of 2010 graduates revealed a 100% high school graduation rate.  (See Summer 2015 NOSF newsletter)

Our scholarships are 100% need-based. Each year, NOSF provides hundreds of thousands of dollars in tuition assistance, with an average scholarship award of nearly $1,200. If you believe that your family is eligible, and you are ready to make a commitment of $500 toward tuition costs, we encourage you to begin the application process today.

NOSF is now accepting applications for the 2019-2020 school year. The link to apply is now available on our website  November 1,2018 thru April 26,2019. DO NOT APPLY if you already receive an NOSF scholarship. This is for NEW applicants only.
