As an Intervention Specialist in the schools, I learned about this scholarship but now I am able to be part of it and proud to be a provider! This is a wonderful opportunity for you, as parents, to get the help both YOU and your children need. I work with children around the ages of 11-12 on up who are either in Charter or Private Schools to receive the standardized testing. To find out more about me and/or the program, check out the information below or give me a call at 614-804-6706.
The facts: (Jon Peterson Link)
The Jon Peterson Special Needs Scholarship Program provides scholarships to students who are eligible to attend kindergarten through 12th grade and have an Individualized Education Program (IEP) from their district of residence. The amount of each scholarship will be based on the disability identified on the student’s IEP and will not exceed $27,000.
There are two application periods annually.
The first application period begins in February and ends on April 15th. Scholarships awarded to this group of applicants will be for the full school year.
The second application period begins in October and ends on November 15th. Scholarships awarded during this second application period will be awarded for half of the school year (January 1 through June 30).
To apply for a Peterson Scholarship, parents of eligible students must first register with a participating Peterson Scholarship Provider. The provider will have the required application forms and will assist the parent in the scholarship application process.
