State Scholarships, Grants, and Special Programs

The Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program

The Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program is a lottery-funded scholarship that rewards Florida high school graduates who demonstrate high academic achievement and enroll in an eligible public or private post-secondary educational institution within three years of high school graduation. It is the umbrella program for three state-funded scholarships: Florida Academic Scholars, Florida Medallion Scholars, and the Florida Gold Seal Vocational Scholars. These awards are determined based on academic achievement in high school, ACT and/or SAT scores, and fulfillment of certain course requirements. The FAFSA is no longer required in order to receive this award.

The amount of each specific award is based on the number of credit hours for which a student registers each semester and the value of each credit hour will be determined by the State on an annual basis. Initial eligibility must be at least 6 credits. For the 2020-2021 academic year recipients of the Florida Academic Scholars received $211 per credit plus a $300 book allowance per term and recipients of the Florida Medallion Scholars received $158 per credit. 

Barry University Financial Aid Office will include an estimated award for the year based on 15 credits of enrollment each semester (i.e. estimated FL Academic Scholars $6930 for the year -- $3465 fall and $3465 spring). At the end of the drop period of each term, the Financial Aid Office will review and update the awards for all students based on the actual number of credits a student is enrolled. Enrollment will also be reviewed at the completion of each term and adjustments will be made at that time as required. Please note that any adjustment to your Bright Futures award may affect your bill with Barry University. A student will be required to reimburse the State of Florida Department of Education for the funds reduced due to dropped or withdrawn after the funds have disbursed.

Florida residents must have their high school guidance counselor submit their information and authorization form to the Florida Bright Futures Program at the Florida Department of Education in Tallahassee.
