State & Federal Financial Aid
Florida Scholarship and Grant Programs
The State of Florida has one application that opens October 1st of a student’s Senior year. There are (13) programs that are included in State funding, including Bright Futures. Some programs are need based and will require a completed FAFSA to evaluate a student’s need for aid and some programs have an April 1st evaluation deadline, so it is best to submit the application as soon as possible after it opens. **Guidance Department will work with students at school in the Fall to complete the application** State funds may only be used in the State of Florida at all public and most private institutions.
More information on all available programs: FloridaStudentAid
Students may check their Bright Futures eligibility progress throughout 9th-12th grade: FloridaShines-BrightFutures
2019-2021 Bright Futures Requirements: BFGuidelines
*New for 2021 – The FMS Bright Futures award will cover 100% of tuition and some fees at a State College (like Daytona State). If student maintains adequate progress and meets the set criteria, upon transfer to a University, they will retain the 100% coverage. However, if used directly at a University, the FMS will fund the established standard of 75% of tuition and some fees.
FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)
The FAFSA is the application for Grants and Loans through the Federal Government; this includes the Pell Grant. The FAFSA application becomes available every October 1st and is completed for every year that you are in college. Every student that applies will qualify for some type of financial assistance and students that currently qualify for Free/Reduced lunch WILL qualify to receive the Pell Grant. FAFSA funds are able to be used Nationwide.
Students and their parent(s) must create an FSAid prior to completing the FAFSA. Your FSAid is your digital signature and will not change; it is used to digitally sign the FAFSA each year. Create your FSAid: FSAid
