I am applying for this scholarship as a senior in high school. I am currently maintaining a 3.9 GPA quarterly in school. I will be a law major working for my bachelors degree. I am hoping to receive some help so I am able to go to college.

I am applying for this scholarship as I am a 2021 graduate. I wish to go to college, and I'm currently doing my best to work part time jobs in order to help my parents. My goal is to have minimal college debt and not have to rely on them, and with this financial help, I know that I can succeed.

I am applying for this scholarship as a junior in high school. I want to go to college to pursue nursing, but I do not have the funds for it. I would love to be able to get a scholarship and go to college without the worries of debt.

I am applying for this scholarship as a junior in high school. I want to be able to go to college without my parents and me not having to worry about a debt. It would be gladly appreciated, my school has given me an option to complete 100 hours and get the scholarship.

I am applying for this scholarship in hopes I can receive a little help while I am attending college. I am senior in high school currently, and I will be a psychology major striving for my PH. D. I currently have a state wide 3.7 GPA and maintain a 4.0 quarterly in school.

I am applying for the Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program because simply in this day in age it is nearly impossible for an almost 18 year old to go to college, the resources aren't acceptable for some and i'm in desperate need for this scholarship

Hi would like to help my parents. As I am a 2020 graduate. The Covid19 pandemic has made me mature and realize I took a lot of things for granted and did not do my best. I have matured and want to help my parents and myself be the best me and that means educating myself. My dad is a realtor In the state of Florida and works on commission. I am a student athlete that with my parents help, I have been able to do what I love. But know I want to do more. I pray I can find a scholarship that I can qualify for. Thank you, Alexander S

The state of Florida raised the SAT admission requirements to obtain Bright Futures scholarships. In light of Covid19 and the inability of students to take the SAT at scheduled times and/or attend SAT prep classes, will the state be moving forward with the rather excessive jump in required scores for the 2021 graduating class?

I am a disabled college freshman and I had 4 scholarships for fall 2019 and spring 2020, but I don't have any for summer 2020

Jen T - dual enrolled and collegiate students are eligible for Bright Futures up until a bachelor degree if I’m not mistaken. If in doubt, check with a HS or college advisor

Can you still get this scholarship if you have gotten the Take Stock in Children Scholarship?

We have heard that students who complete their AA through dual enrollment while in high school are not eligible for the bright futures scholarship. Is this the case? If so, is there a limit to the number of college credit hours a student can complete through dual enrollment, AP or AICE classes and still be eligible for Bright Futures?

We are in the process of applying for Bright Futures for our daughter. She attended high school for 2 years, then because of anxiety over school shootings, she needed to leave and decided to dual enroll and take an online course to finish - technically registered as a home schooler with the school district. She is an honor student with high GPA and has her 100+ hours of community service. She has been offered the scholarship by letter, both from FAAA and her college where she'll attend in the fall. But, the BF folks are telling us she has to sit for the GED! She graduated at the FPEA convention last month with her 24 required credits, has a 1300 SAT and is an Honor Student and yet they are making her sit for the GED??? Does anyone else have this issue? I feel like due to her anxiety they are discriminating against her when she has done everything required, and beyond. It's been very frustrating, as I've talked to Home Education Office in our School District (Hillsborough), the state counselors office for high schoolers, the GED office (who thinks sitting for it is ridiculous), as well as the Bright Futures lead lady. Everyone (except the BF lady) things it's ludicrous. Can anyone offer their own experiences? If we wait till she's 18 in July, that leaves very little time if there is a problem, and she could lose out on this scholarship she truly needs. I'm very discouraged.

HI. I did apply but I am not sure about the award. Every bit helps. Thank you.

You may also be a home-schooler to qualify. You do not have to be enrolled in a public or private school in Florida. A graduate of a home education program in Florida is just as eligible for Bright Future Scholarships.
