    Bright Futures Scholarship Information  


    Students must APPLY for the scholarship by submitting the Florida Financial Aid Application (FFAA) no later than August 31 after high school graduation. Here are instructions!

    The Office of Student Financial Assistance (OSFA) strongly encourages students to complete the FFAA if eligibility requirements have not yet been satisfied or if a student chooses to attend an out-of-state postsecondary institution. If a student does not apply for the scholarship by the deadline, a student cannot receive the scholarship! All eligibility requirements must be met by high school graduation; however, scores of ACT®/CLT®/SAT®/PERT tests taken through August 31 are accepted for evaluation purposes.

    After submitting the FFAA, the student is responsible for tracking their application and award status online, keeping OSFA informed of any demographic or institutional changes, and ensuring that funding for an academic year is accurate by contacting their institution’s financial aid office.

    Once disbursed program funds, the Bright Futures Scholarship will renew automatically each year (up to the scholarship limit) if the student maintains renewal requirements. An annual FFAA is not required to be submitted to renew the Bright Futures Scholarship.
