Scholarship Grant (AB165)

AB165 created the Nevada Educational Choice Scholarship Program which became effective July 1, 2015. This program allows a family in Nevada to apply for annual scholarships of up to $8,469 per student. It grants K-12 students that would like to attend a private school of their choice the ability to offset tuition cost including textbooks, supply fees and transportation to and from the school. The student must also be a member of a household whose annual income is within 300% of the designated federal poverty guidelines. You can apply to one or more scholarship organizations. If you receive approval from more than one, you will need to choose the one that best meets your family’s financial needs.
