State-Funded Scholarship Offerings

In addition to The George Washington University Online High School Scholarship, GWUOHS also participates in a several state-funded scholarship programs to further expand the accessibility of a high-quality education.

The Arizona Empowerment Scholarship Account (ESA)

Arizona’s ESA helps families pursue flexible options for their children’s learning. Public funding through the ESA enables families to expand their educational opportunities outside the public school system and further personalize their educational experience. Arizona’s ESA can cover education expenses, including private school tuition, tutoring services, learning materials, and more.

  • Scholarship dollars that significantly contribute to GWUOHS tuition costs*
  • Additional scholarship dollars for students with special needs
  • The ability to customize their child’s education
  • Equal opportunity for children to access a personalized learning experience
  • An easy application process—just two simple steps for approval
