Who Qualifies?

Corporate Scholarships

At School Choice Arizona, we work primarily with the Corporate “Low-Income” scholarships. To qualify students must fall under one of the following categories (& be considered low income according to 185% of income level set by the Federal Reduced Lunch Guidelines *see household income guidelines below):

1. Switchers: Students who have switched from an Arizona public or charter school after having attended the public school for at least 90 days (or one full semester) in the prior school year.

2. Kindergartners: All Kindergarten students entering into an Arizona private school qualify. Pre-K students with a disability also qualify with an IEP or 504 plan.

3. Military: Students who are the dependents of a member of the US Armed Forces, stationed in Arizona pursuant to military orders.

4. Previous Scholarship: Students who have previously received a scholarship (in a prior year) from any of the scholarship programs (Corporate, Individual and/or Overflow/PLUS) and has continued on in the private school ever since the receipt of the award.

2. Displaced: Students who are (or have been) placed in foster care at any time before the student graduates high school.
