When do I apply for the Florida Bright Futures Scholarship?
For Initial Eligibility the student will:
- Submit a fully completed, error free Initial Student Florida Financial Aid Application during the last year in high school -- after December 1, but prior to graduation. The application gives the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) permission to evaluate the student’s high school transcript and standardized test scores for eligibility for a Bright Futures Scholarship and other state scholarships and grants.
- If you do not apply during your last year in high school, you will forfeit all future eligibility for a Bright Futures Scholarship.
