Bright Futures Scholarships

Did you know in your senior year you MUST complete an application to receive the Bright Futures Scholarship? Beginning October 1st you can complete the senior application process by going to https://www.floridastudentfinancialaidsg.org/SAPHome/SAPHome

  • Under First Time Applicants
  • Click on Create a Student Account
  • Once you have an account created, go back to the home page and log into your account and complete the Florida Financial Aid Application, FFAA.

You can and SHOULD complete this application even if you have not completed your volunteer hours or have your desired test scores. Bright Futures will match that information to you as it comes.

Don't forget to turn your volunteer hours in to your school counselor.    The only way to get them on your transcript is to submit them to your school counselor.  The earlier the better!

If you have a qualifying GPA, qualifying test scores, and all volunteer or work hours submitted before we leave for winter break, you will be evaluated by Bright Futures for the scholarship during the 2nd semester.  This means you will know what you qualify for before the summer term and can use your Bright Futures scholarship to pay for summer classes. 

If you complete the qualifications during the 2nd semester of senior year, you will not be evaluated until July.  This will delay knowing what you qualify for and possibly prevent you from using scholarship funds to pay for summer classes. 

The earlier the better!
