Lottery for Special Needs Scholarships

The Mississippi Department of Education will hold a scholarship lottery for students with special needs.
The Equal Opportunity for Students with Special Needs Act of 2015 provides scholarships to parents of students with disabilities who want to remove their child from public school to seek educational services elsewhere.
The law provides for 425 education scholarship accounts and after taking out students who are returning from last school year, 175 scholarships are still available.
The deadline to submit an application is July 19th. The lottery will be held July 20th. The state will notify applicants of their status by the 25th.
