GREAT! Based on the information you provided in the previous screens, your student(s) may be eligible to receive the Indiana Choice Scholarship. We have just a few more questions to determine their eligibility based on household income.

Unfortunately, based on the information you entered, your student would not qualify for an Indiana Choice Scholarship (voucher). However, if you may be eligible for an SGO tax credit award that will allow your student to receive the voucher after one year in one of our Catholic schools. Please provide answers to the following questions:

1. Is your student a foster child?

Just a few more questions.

Q.1 Last year, was your student enrolled in a public or charter school for at least two semesters (1 school year)?
