Alabama Accountability Act

Scholarships for Kids

The Alabama Accountability Act (AAA) authorizes donation-funded scholarships that enable low income students to attend qualified private schools. These scholarships are granted by specially created Scholarship Granting Organizations (SGOs) for the sole purpose of taking private donations and awarding them to low-income students in schools which have qualified to receive funds.
