There aren’t as many home schooled students today as they wore in the past, but surprisingly individuals who have chosen to study at school are also eligible for scholarships. Online education puts a more modern spin on the whole home schooling affair, so if you are considering applying to an online university and staying home to learn, you might also be eligible for the grants we’re going to share with you next. Online degrees providers also offers grants and bursaries, but the scholarships we’re going to talk about are offered by third-party institutions focused on home schooling.
Home Education Leadership Fund
The community foundation of Utah awards $1,000 annually to a student resident of the state of Utah who is a high school senior (or equivalent). The applicant must be home schooled and looking to enroll with an online university to further continue his/her online education.
