Grants for High School Home Schooling

By Ana Purna
Grants for books and supplies are available for homeschoolers in special situations.

Many families choose to homeschool their children all the way through high school. It can be a daunting task, but with an accredited curriculum and the support of like-minded families, many people give their high school students a solid foundation to continue into higher education. Grants and scholarships to support upper-level homeschooling are available from several sources and funds. The Home School Foundation is a primary source of grant funding for homeschooling families. The amounts of their grants vary from year to year, depending upon the number of applicants and available funds.

Compassion Fund

The Home School Foundation offers an open-ended grant to homeschooling families in financial need. Families affected by natural disasters are eligible for this grant, as are groups of homeschooling families. Grant amounts vary, depending upon the availability of funds and the proposed project's need.

Special Needs Children's Fund

Parents who are homeschooling children with special needs are eligible for this grant, which offers financial assistance for supplies and curriculum support, such as specialised therapists and equipment. If your child or student has learning disabilities, impairments or other conditions that necessitate special education, you may be eligible for this funding. In addition to demonstrating financial need, applicants for this grant must be members of the Home School Legal Defense Association. These grants vary in size and are determined by the amount needed and the availability of funding.
