Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program

Bright Futures awards offered by the state of Florida include the Florida Academic Scholarship and the Florida Medallion Scholarship.  Bright Futures eligibility is coordinated through your high school guidance office and the final award is based on the actual number of enrolled credits. Renewal gpa is 3.0 for the Florida Academic Scholars and 2.75 for the Florida Medallion Scholars Award along with the successful completion of the required number of credit hours.

 

If you receive the Florida Academic Scholars Award, your Bright Futures award will be based on $103 per credit hour. If you receive the Florida Medallion Scholars Award, your Bright Futures award will be based on $77 per credit hour. 

 

For awarding purposes, we will estimate your enrollment at 16 credit hours per semester until the end of the add/drop period each semester. At that point, we will adjust your Bright Futures award based on the your actual enrollment. For example, if you are enrolled in 18 hours at the end of the add/drop period, your Bright Futures award will be increased. Conversely, if you are enrolled in 12 hours at the end of the add/drop period, your Bright Futures award will be decreased.

 

In addition, we are required to return any Bright Futures awards for credits dropped or not successfully completed. At the end of the add/drop period, your Bright Futures award will be set and any changes from that point on will result in either a reduction of your award (if you drop credits) or an increase (if you add credits). This will impact your student account and any balance created, will be due immediately.

 

Calculation:   ________________ X $_____________ = $__________________

                     Hours Enrolled                $103 or $77             Semester Award

 

Note: The maximum amount of Bright Futures you may receive each year is based on 45 hours of enrollment (fall plus spring total credit hours completed).
