Candidates must be current full-time students in the undergraduate program. The award amount is a fixed cost per credit hour based on the number of credits in which a student was enrolled on the last day of the drop/add period. If the number of credits decreases during the semester due to a late drop or withdrawal, your scholarship will be reduced accordingly and the funds will be returned to the state of Florida from the Office of Student Financial Assistance (OSFA). If this occurs, you’re responsible for repaying the amount to the school. If you do not repay the cost of the dropped/withdrawn course, you will not be eligible to renew your Bright Futures award for the following school year.
Scholarship amount is $77–$211 per academic credit. This amount will be prorated if you’re not a full-time student.
Need-based aid: No
Academic scholars $211 per credit plus $300 stipend per semester (Fall & Spring only). Medallion scholars $77 per credit.
This aid is for new, returning, day, evening, transfer, full-time, part-time, freshman, sophomore, junior and senior students.
