About the Tax Credit Scholarship Program

Tax Credit Scholarships, better known as “SGO Scholarships”, are scholarships awarded by Scholarship Granting Organizations to low-and-middle-income families to help them afford the nonpublic school of their choice. SGOs were enacted in 2009, and have been expanded in subsequent years as a key component of the Indiana School Choice effort. Donations to fund SGO scholarships feature a 50% state tax credit for the donor.


Anyone can support SGO scholarships! However, to receive the Tax Credit you must pay or owe Indiana state taxes. Donations can come from corporations, partnerships, LLCs, PCs, trusts, the self-employed, or individual taxpayers.
