5. Work with the school to complete the Choice Scholarship application.
If your family meets the eligibility, income qualifications, has been accepted to Lutheran High School, and completed the FACTS Grant and Aid Application, please contact Tenille Bullock, Director of Admissions (click here) or 317-787-5474 ext.218 to apply for the Choice Scholarship.
6. Sign the Distribution Endorsement form.
The Choice Scholarship award is designated for the student but will be distributed directly to the school. The parent/guardian plays a very important role in the payment process. Provided the student has been approved for a Choice Scholarship, the school will provide you a distribution endorsement form in October that both you and the school must sign. This form will instruct the state to provide payment to the school on your behalf, as part of your education choice. Without the completed form, the state will not make any payments.
As with any program, be sure that the information you submit is accurate. Providing false information could affect the student’s eligibility.
