Tax Credit Scholarship Opportunities

 

Two Types of Scholarships:  Individual and Corporate

  1. Individual
  1. Original Tax Credit Scholarship   

-     The Original scholarship is the traditional scholarship opportunity that has existed since the beginning in 1998 as A.R.S. §43-1089.  

-     Any student who is attending Phoenix Christian is eligible to apply for an Original scholarship. 

  1. Overflow/PLUS Tax Credit Scholarship

 

  • The Overflow/PLUS scholarship is a brand new opportunity as A.R.S. §43-1089.03. It is intended to give private schools additional help with their students' cost of tuition while still ensuring that the end result is budget positive for the state.
  • This scholarship is only available to parents who choose to send their students to a private school instead of a public or charter.  For every student no longer enrolled at a public school, the state no longer has to pay for that student's education, hence, a budget positive result.
  • Students who are eligible fall under these four categories:
  1. Switchers: A student who switched from a public to a private school in the previous school year after having attended the public school for at least 90 days (or one full semester) before switching.
  2. Kindergarteners (or a student with disabilities enrolled in a pre-school that offers services to students with disabilities).
  3. Military: Students who are the dependents of a member of the U.S. Armed Forces who is stationed in Arizona pursuant to military orders.
  4. Corporate/Overflow: A student who has already received a scholarship from the corporate tax credit or Overflow/PLUS tax credit program, and has continued in private school ever since.
  1. Corporate
    1. is either switching from a public school to a qualified private school, or
    2. is entering kindergarten at a qualified private school, or
    3. a student that is a dependent of a member of the United States armed forces who is stationed in Arizona pursuant to military orders.
