The Future of Bright Futures...Isn’t So Bright

Last Updated on May 16, 2019 11:28:00 AM

Many college-bound Florida students and their families take advantage of the state’s generous Bright Futures Scholarship program, which awards students a certain percentage of their tuition as determined by test scores, volunteer hours, high school curriculum and GPA. Currently, students scoring 1290 on the SAT or 29 on the ACT are eligible to receive 100% tuition and fees to attend one of Florida’s public institutions (UF, FSU, and the like) under the program’s Florida Academic Scholarship, assuming they meet the academic and volunteer requirements. The Florida Medallion Scholarship, a partial award consisting of 75% tuition and fees, is given to students who score 1170 on the SAT or 26 on the ACT and meet the academic and volunteer requirements. While the awards are sufficient to cover all or most of tuition and fees at a public university in Florida, they may also be applied to the tuition at private universities in Florida (University of Miami, for instance). High-achieving students are recognized for their hard work and can enjoy the benefits of a more affordable college education. However, a significant change to the program will adversely affect some students from the class of 2021 onward.

Will Bright Futures Grow Dim for Some Florida Students?

Last Updated on Apr 1, 2019 4:08:32 PM

On March 6th, the Florida Senate Committee on Education unanimously approved a Senate bill (SB 190) which changes Bright Futures Scholarship (BFS) awards. There are still legislative hurdles to overcome before it could be presented to the governor for his signature, but its unanimous, bipartisan passage in committee strongly suggests that it – or something closely comparable – will eventually become law.
