The D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program (OSP) awards need-based annual scholarships to eligible District children to attend a participating private D.C. elementary, middle, or high school of their parent's choice.
For school year 2015-16, individual scholarship awards are up to $12,572 for high school and up to $8,381 for elementary and middle school. Opportunity scholarships may only be used at schools participating in the program and can be used to pay for tuition, school-related fees, and public transportation expenses (up to the annual maximum scholarship award).
