North Carolina families will soon have additional opportunities for educating their children.  Thanks to the passage of the North Carolina Opportunity Scholarship Act, qualified families will be eligible for tuition assistance up to $4200 per year.

The North Carolina Opportunity Scholarship Act was passed by the General Assembly in July 2013 and will help students who often have the greatest difficulty receiving critical educational resources by allowing them to receive opportunity scholarships up to $4,200 per student.

The program will begin the 2014-15 school year and applications will become available through the State Education Assistance Authority starting February 1, 2014.
