The North Carolina State Education Assistance Authority (NCSEAA) is now accepting Opportunity Scholarship applications for the 2015-16 school year. The deadline for firsttime and renewal applications is March 1.
The Opportunity Scholarship Program is the subject of lawsuits now pending before the North Carolina Supreme Court; the case will be heard starting on February 17. NCSEAA has been authorized to prepare for the 2015-16 school year but cannot disburse funds without further order of the Court. The Opportunity Scholarship Program provides funding of up to $4,200 per year for low-income children who choose to attend a participating nonpublic school.
