Homeschoolers Now Eligible for State Scholarships

With the enactment of House Bill 1291 on April 30, 2013, a resident student who completes a program of home education in North Dakota during or after the 2012-13 school year is eligible to receive a career and technical education scholarship or an academic scholarship. These scholarships had previously been awarded only to students in public and nonpublic schools.

The amount of the scholarship is $750 for each semester or $500 for each quarter during which the student is enrolled full time at an accredited institution of higher learning in North Dakota and maintains a cumulative grade point average of 2.75. The maximum scholarship amount for each student is $6,000. The state board of higher education forwards the scholarship funds directly to the institution in which the student is enrolled after the superintendent of public instruction certifies that the student is eligible for the scholarship.

The passage of this legislation represents the successful efforts of the North Dakota Home School Association to create more educational opportunities for home educators.
