Students with Disabilities Scholarships

Currently the Ohio Department of Education is offering two scholarships to students with disabilities. One is for students diagnosed with autism and the other is for any student with a disability. Your child may be eligible for a scholarship under the Autism Scholarship Program, or the Jon Peterson Special Needs Scholarship Program, to attend a different special education
program that implements the child's individualized education program and that is operated by an alternative public provider, or by a registered private provider.

To find out information about these two scholarships, please see the attached information or you can find the information on the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) web site at For information on the Autism Scholarship Program, search Autism Scholarship Program. For information on the Jon Peterson Special Needs Scholarship Program, search Jon Peterson Scholarship.
