About Opportunity Scholarship Fund
The Opportunity Scholarship Fund (OSF) is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization helping promote and manage the Oklahoma tax-credit scholarship program. Students qualify based on standards established by individual member school’s financial aid criteria and meet the requirements established by the Oklahoma Equal Opportunity Education Scholarship Act. According to an independent fiscal impact study in 2017, the fiscal return to the state is $1.24 of savings for every $1 of tax credit issued based on the state’s per-pupil spending on common education. When accounting for all funding sources, the fiscal return is $2.58 for every $1 of tax credit issued. Established in late 2014, OSF is the premier scholarship granting organization in Oklahoma.
