BRIGHT FUTURES SCHOLARSHIPS FAQs
Changes to Bright Futures Scholarships
1. All Bright Futures recipients are now REQUIRED to submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each academic year prior to receiving a disbursement.
2. Florida Academic Scholars Bright Futures Award will now be awarded at $100 per credit hour.
3. Florida Medallion Scholars Bright Futures Award will now be awarded at $75 per credit hour.
In addition, on your award offer, the Bright Futures amount is based on full-time enrollment . Students will be paid based on actual enrollment after the drop/add deadline. For example, if a student is enrolled in 9 credit hours after the drop/add deadline, the Bright Futures award would be paid based on 9 credit hours (and not the amount that was initially awarded). All classes dropped after the drop/add deadline MUST be REPAID in order to be eligible for renewal.
