AAA Scholarship Foundation works with schools in each of our scholarship states to make Academic Achievement Accessible. We can not do that without excellent schools for families to choose from.
Each state has individual guidelines determined by the laws of that state and the accountability guidelines of the AAA Scholarship Foundation. Please choose your state to view details on school participation.
Schools should not accept any students without a Scholarship Award Letter and School Commitment Form (SCF) unless the household: 1) is willing to self-pay their tuition and fees until they are awarded a scholarship and 2) will self-pay if they are not. If a household receives a SCF in error or their eligibility is revoked, the private school that has enrolled the student will be notified as soon as possible. By accepting the scholarship student(s) and scholarship payment(s) the private school agrees to repay any incorrectly made or overpayment of funds on behalf of the student(s), regardless of the reason. Households that document eligibility but are placed on a waitlist do not have a scholarship unless they receive a Scholarship Award Letter and SCF at a later date.
Things to Know
The Basics of AAA:
AAA Scholarship Foundation (AAA), a private non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, is an approved Scholarship Organization in the states of Arizona, Florida, Georgia and Nevada.
AAA awards income-based scholarships to eligible students from eligible households to help them attend an eligible private school of their choice. These scholarships assist economically-disadvantaged families pay for tuition and fees, where applicable. AAA also awards disability-based scholarships which assist students with certain disabilities afford to access the educational settings that best fit their learning-needs..
An AAA family can not be awarded a scholarship from more than one Scholarship Organization for the same time period. Schools may accept scholarships from other Scholarship Organizations (for other students) in addition to accepting AAA scholarships.
Scholarships Versus Vouchers:
AAA income-based scholarships ARE NOT TUITION VOUCHERS. Tuition vouchers are government-funded and the payments come from the government. AAA Tax Credit Scholarships are privately funded by companies and individuals who care about their communities. AAA income-based scholarships are awarded to eligible households for eligible students, not to schools. The household decides to which eligible private school to send their student(s).
AAA scholarship payments are made 4 times per year after completion of our verification process by the school (we email each school a verification report unless we do not have an email on file, then we will fax it). AAA mails payments for each eligible child to the school, in the name of the parent. Each check must be signed by the parent/guardian listed as Parent/Guardian A on the application prior to deposit into the school’s account. Power of Attorney is NOT permitted by law.
AAA does not require schools to admit participating students. AAA scholarship households and schools must agree to follow scholarship policies in order to participate.
