EdChoice Scholarship Program

EdChoice Expansion is now available to ALL Badin families who live in the state of Ohio!

We will keep you updated as we learn more.

In July 2023, Ohio Governor DeWine signed the state budget passed by the Ohio House and Senate. In that budget, the EdChoice Expansion Program has been expanded considerably and will benefit all families to some capacity.

Students whose family’s household adjusted gross income is at or below 450% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) will be eligible for an EdChoice Expansion Scholarship. The amount of this scholarship will be $8,407 for those in high school.
Students whose family’s household adjusted gross income is at 451% or higher will receive a scholarship based on a sliding scale determined by ODE.

It is important to know that Badin High School does not determine the amount of the scholarship. Families are responsible for the difference between the EdChoice Scholarship they receive and the cost of tuition and fees.


  • If you have already applied/renewed for the 2023-24 school year, you do not need to apply again.
  • If you are already on the Traditional EdChoice Scholarship, you do not need to apply again.

Income verification is required to determine the scholarship amount awarded. It is only required for the first year of application. Income verification will only be required in subsequent years if a family’s income has dropped, or if you would like to see if you qualify for a higher level of the scholarship award. Also, if your family income is at or below 200% you will need to submit income verification every year.
