The EASE was previously known as the Florida Resident Access Grant (FRAG). This program provides tuition assistance to full-time students from Florida attending private, independent colleges and universities located in the state. Students who have been residents of Florida (other than for educational purposes) for at least twelve consecutive months may be eligible for the grant. This program provides approximately $2,000 per academic year, subject to state budget appropriations.
FLORIDA BRIGHT FUTURES SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
The Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program is an excellent scholarship opportunity for Florida high school students with a good academic record.
This need-based grant provides approximately $500 to $1000 per academic year, subject to state budget appropriations. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to apply. It is recommended that the application be completed prior to May 15th, as these funds are limited and will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
This program was initially designed for Florida public colleges and universities but has been expanded to include Florida College. If you have a Florida Prepaid plan, contact the program and tell them that you will be attending Florida College. As each plan varies, questions regarding your specific plan and/or how much your plan will pay should be directed to Florida Prepaid.
