State Aid - Florida Bright Futures – Eligibility for Graduate Study

Florida Academic Scholars (FAS) or Florida Medallion Scholars (FMS): FAS and FMS recipients who graduate with a baccalaureate degree earned in the 2010-11 academic year or thereafter, in seven or fewer semesters, or the equivalent, may receive funding for ONE semester of graduate study, not to exceed 15 credit hours paid at the undergraduate rate. Additional Information is available on the Florida Bright Futures page of the Florida Student Scholarship & Grant Programs website. The State of Florida will notify the university of a student’s eligibility. The University's Office of Financial Assistance Services will notify the School of Law Office of Financial Aid, if a student has eligibility for a FAS or FMS award. The award will be part of your financial aid award offer. This will reduce federal loan eligibility, which will assist in decreasing future loan debt.
