Best Choice Schools invites all homeschooled students to apply for our scholarship that is specifically designated for homeschoolers attending college! At Best Choice Schools, we understand that being homeschooled might be a roadblock for qualifying for some scholarships. We want to remove that obstacle by awarding not one, but two $5,000 scholarships each year to homeschooled students who demonstrate the true strength that can be found in being educated non-traditionally and outside of a public or private school system.
