Parents of special needs students in Ohio now have a valuable scholarship opportunity to aid with supplies, education costs and services. The Jon Peterson Special Needs Scholarship is available to Ohio special needs students. Scholarships will be awarded depending on a child’s special education category, as identified on their Individualized Education Program (IEP). Any student with an IEP is eligible to apply.   

Choose the private school and/or provider(s) for the child’s unique learning needs and ask the primary provider to apply for the scholarship on the student’s behalf. There are over 300 registered schools and private providers statewide.

The deadline to apply is November 15, 2016. Eligible students who apply during this application window, if selected, will receive a prorated scholarship that begins in January 2017.
