How the Gardiner Scholarship Works

The Gardiner Scholarship program helps parents individualize the educational plans for their children with certain special needs.

A different kind of scholarship: The Gardiner Scholarship is different than other state scholarships in that it allows parents to personalize the education of their children with unique abilities by directing money toward a combination of programs and approved providers. These include schools, therapists, specialists, curriculum, technology – even a college savings account.

The Gardiner Scholarship scholarship amount varies according to grade, county of residence and disability. The average amount for most students in the 2017-18 school year is $10,000, and is based on a matrix level of 253.
