  • The Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program for Florida residents is the umbrella program for all state-funded scholarships based on academic achievement in high school.

    How and When Does a Student Apply?

    Students must apply during their last year in high school (after December 1 and prior to graduation) or forfeit all future eligibility for a Bright Futures Scholarship.

    * A student who receives a Bright Futures award and attends an out-of-state postsecondary institution and then returns to Florida to complete his/her education within three years may apply for reinstatement of the original award.
    * In order to receive funding for a Florida Bright Futures Award, a student must:
    » Be a Florida resident and a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen, as determined by the student's postsecondary institution.
    » Earn a standard Florida high school diploma or its equivalent.
    » Be accepted by and enroll in an eligible Florida public or independent postsecondary education institution within 3 years of high school graduation. If you enlist directly into the military after graduation, your three-year period begins on the date you separated from active duty.
    » Be enrolled for at least 6 semester credit hours or the equivalent in quarter hours or clock hours.
    » Not have been found guilty of, or plead nolo contendere to, a felony charge, unless the student has been granted clemency by the Governor and Cabinet sitting as the Executive Office of Clemency.
    » Apply for a scholarship from the program by high school graduation.
