Basic Program Facts about the Hope Scholarship

Florida created the Hope Scholarship in 2018 to give bullied students a fresh start. This first-of-its-kind school choice program provides scholarships to students suffering from bullying at their prior public school. K-12 students who have reported an incident of harassment, hazing, bullying, robbery, sexual assault and more, may be eligible for a scholarship to attend a private school or a public school in a different school district. The program is paid for by individual donors who receive a tax credit, up to $105, on their motor vehicle purchase taxes. Tax credits were first made available to donors on October 1, 2018.
