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, to continue to grow minds and create futures, and give hope 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 2015 graduates revealed a 100% high school graduation rate.
The application window for the 2022-2023 school year is now closed. Please check back after January 1, 2023 for the 2023-2024 school year to apply.
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.
An investment in education is good economics.
