Scholarships for Bullied or Harassed Students

Hope Scholarships are available to students who have been bullied or harassed in their public school to attend a participating private school.

Does my child qualify?

Students who have experienced harassment; hazing; bullying; kidnapping; physical attack; robbery; sexual offenses, assault, or battery; threat or intimidation; or fighting at a public K-12 school are eligible.

What is the average scholarship value?

Families can choose to receive financial assistance toward private school tuition and fees or assistance with transportation to a public school in another school district. For the private school option, award amounts are determined by the student’s grade level and the county in which the student lives.
