School Tuition Organization Scholarships for Disabled/Displaced Students
School Tuition Organizations that receive corporate contributions can provide educational scholarships for qualified disabled and displaced students to attend a qualified Arizona private school (A.R.S. §43-1505).
A qualified disabled/displaced student is a student who has been either:
- Identified as having a disability under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act or identified at any time by a school district as a child with a disability as defined in § 15-761 or a child with a disability who is eligible to receive services from a school district under § 15-763, or
- Placed in foster care in Arizona pursuant to A.R.S. Title 8, Chapter 5 at any time before the student graduates from high school or obtains a general equivalency diploma.
