Tax Credit Scholarships

What Are Tax Credit Scholarships?
The Indiana Tax Credit Scholarship Program provides scholarship support to families who want to enroll their children in the private school of their choice. Qualifying students in grades K-12 can receive a minimum of a $500 Tax Credit Scholarship. Funding for these scholarships is provided by private donors who become eligible for state tax credits.

  •  A student whose family meets the income eligibility guidelines for the Federal Free and Reduced Lunch Program (see the chart below) AND
  • A student who is coming to a private school after attending at least one year (two semesters) in an Indiana public school.
