Scholarship Funding Organization (SFO) Information
Scholarship Funding Organizations (SFOs) are the non-profit organizations that issue scholarships and determine student eligibility for the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship Program.
Any non-profit charitable organization may apply to be a Scholarship Funding Organization. The Participation Application Form for new participants and Renewal Application Form for existing SFOs are made available no later than December 1st of each year.
Application and renewal forms are not being accepted at this time. The deadline to submit the appropriate form in order to be eligible to participate for the 2013-14 school year was February 1, 2013.
Please note: If you are the owner or operator of a private school participating in the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship Program, you are not eligible to operate a Scholarship Funding Organization. Participating private schools must submit the Scholarship Compliance Form which is accessed by logging in as a Private School Administrator.
If you have any questions, please contact the School Choice information hotline at (800) 447-1636.
