The AAA Difference
AAA Scholarship Foundation (AAA), a private non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, is an approved Scholarship Organization in the states of Arizona, Georgia, Florida, and Nevada. AAA is authorized to administer innovative state-approved education tax credit programs that fund scholarships exclusively for children with economic, physical and/or intellectual disadvantages (up to grade 12). Qualifying families can use these scholarships to access the educational settings that best fit their children’s learning needs. The spirit of the income-based scholarship laws is to provide educational alternatives to a group of people who, because of financial circumstances alone, have none.

About Our Students:
The typical AAA scholarship student is an ethnic minority living with a struggling single parent/caregiver in a high crime community. Over 85 percent of AAA scholarship students reside in households that income-qualify for the Federal free and reduced lunch program (household incomes of less than or equal to 185 percent of federal poverty threshold). Many children are either below grade level, failing at their previous school or both when they receive an income-based scholarship. Parents, who find their children in these circumstances and care about their future, look for viable options. They seek an atmosphere that challenges and engages their child to reverse inappropriate learning and/or social patterns and the lifelong negative impact they imply. They wish to change their child’s learning environment, acquaintances, and the unfortunate predictable outcomes associated with school failure.

AAA Scholarship Foundation is different from other Scholarship Organizations because we:
- Award scholarships directly to families – not schools.
- Award income-based scholarships solely to qualifying low-income families and scholarships to families of children with disabilities.
- Empower parents to choose the best school for their child(ren) – scholarships follow the children to each qualified school as long as the family remains eligible.
- Award scholarships for at least a 3-year term when allowed because we understand that the continuity of an educational setting is important for children to succeed.
- Designate the use of interest earned on contributions to fund scholarships.
- Have a CPA on-staff to ensure that your tax questions are answered correctly and to ensure timely and accurate reporting.
