Here’s how it works

  1. Parents and guardians apply for an educational savings account scholarships to be used to pay for goods or services.
  2. Your organization applies to become a Qualified Educational Service Provider – a preapproved resource where families can spend their ACE funds.
  3. Merit verifies your organization and lists it on the Education Marketplace in your state.
  4. Parents and guardians browse the Education Marketplace to discover relevant services by category, grade, and location.
  5. Parents and guardians use Merit’s platform to submit claims for reimbursement – either to themselves or to pay a service provider’s invoice.
  6. You verify claims via an intuitive dashboard on the Merit platform.
