To be initially eligible for a Florida Bright Futures Scholarship, the student must:
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is not a requirement to receive Bright Futures for 2013-14; however, SPC Financial Assistance Services recommends you submit the FAFSA.
Verification and Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) do not affect Bright Futures eligibility. However, if you are selected for verification or are not meeting SAP, you are encouraged to complete these items by submitting the necessary documents.
Note: An initially eligible student who enlists in the military immediately after high school graduation begins the two-year or three-year (depending on the high school graduation year) period upon date of separation from active duty.
