Apply for SOLVE (Supporting Onsite Learning for Virtual Education) Scholarship

Georgia's program for Supporting Onsite Learning for Virtual Education (SOLVE) provides scholarships for families with students in a Georgia public school district that is offering only a virtual learning model. Scholarships support families for children ages 5-12 (grades kindergarten and higher) by paying for care, supervision and support during the school day while students are engaged in virtual learning. Children cannot hold a CAPS Scholarship and SOLVE Scholarship at the same time.
Before starting the application, review the SOLVE Scholarship Information.
