Please see your SAS counselor if you have any questions or problems completing this application!
The Bright Futures Scholarship can be used at any institution of higher learning in the state of Florida. Private schools too! However, the money given to attend a private school will be equal to what it would have cost to attend a public state university. Even if you think that you will not go to a school in Florida next year, please be aware that the program will hold your scholarship for three years from the time you graduate from high school thus extending the time before you have to start using it. During their senior year of high school many students believe they will not attend a post secondary school in Florida; however, they often wind up at a state or private school in our state.
