NH Bridge Scholarships
Make a difference in the life of a New Hampshire student.
NH Bridge Scholarships are awarded to school-aged children, like Angelica Encarnacion. 40% or more of the scholarship recipients qualify for free or reduced lunch. Family income is verified and scholarships are awarded to students first come, first served based on highest need and funds raised for tuition for private school, a public school outside of the student’s district or for homeschooling expenses.
The average scholarship amounts will be $2500 per student per year, but there is no cap on how much a child may be helped. No new regulations are imposed upon private schools and homeschoolers are eligible for help with classes and materials up to $625 in the first year.

How Does the Tax Credit Work
A NH law allows businesses to receive a substantial tax credit for making contributions to The Network for Educational Opportunity (NEO) for NH Bridge Scholarships.
Businesses can receive an 85% Education Tax Credit from the State of New Hampshire against business profits tax and/or business enterprise tax, as well as a federal tax deduction, for a total of about a 90% tax savings.
Education Tax Credits are awarded to businesses on a first-come, first-served basis until the first-year cap of 3.4 million dollars in credits (2013) is reached. Therefore, businesses are encouraged to submit the Education Tax Credit Application early in the year and we are happy to assist you. Click here to contact us.
