Who we are

The BOOST Scholarship Coalition is a group of parents, educators and school administrators who are dedicated to ensuring that Maryland students have access to high-quality, affordable and diverse educational options. 

We believe that education is not a one-size-fits-all endeavor and that families should be provided with the opportunity to choose the education best fit for their child.


What is the BOOST Scholarship Program?

The state of Maryland enacted the BOOST (Broadening Options & Opportunities for Students Today) Scholarship Program in 2016 to give K-12 students from lower-income Maryland families an opportunity to find the best educational fit for their needs by awarding applicants with scholarships to attend nonpublic school. More options are now within reach for all Maryland families and children, particularly those who are most in need.

For the 2019-20 school year, the average BOOST recipient's family reported an average household income of just $32,999
