The online registration process for Education Service Providers to sign up for participation in the Hope Scholarship Program is still under development in the Education Market Assistant (EMA) platform. We anticipate that the online registration process for providers will be finalized towards the end of April 2022.

Hope Scholarship students will direct their funds electronically to participating Education Service Providers through the EMA platform. The funds will then be send directly from the EMA platform to the Education Service Providers. Hope Scholarship funds will be available to students in the EMA accounts twice a year – half of the funds will be available by August 15th and half of the funds will be available by January 15th. Any refunds of Hope Scholarship funds by an Education Service Provider must be electronically deposited back to the student’s EMA account – the funds cannot be refunded, rebated, or shared with a parent or student in any other manner.
