K-12 Scholarships from the State of North Carolina
North Carolina has two scholarships to assist children and their families who want to attend non-public (private or home) schools for all or part of kindergarten through the end of high school. The Disabilities Grant Program assists children with disabilities, and the Opportunity Scholarship assists lower income families. Find information about both on the North Carolina State Education Assistance Authority website. Students with disabilities from low-income families might qualify for both programs, so please be sure to look at the pages for both.
