Is there a deadline for applying for a Bright Futures scholarship?

Updated: Jun 7, 2023

Yes.A student must apply during their last year in high school or he forfeits all future eligibility for a Bright Futures Scholarship. An applicant must apply prior to graduation, but the Bright Futures’ Office will accept ACT/SAT scores for tests taken in June of the school year of graduation. The Bright Futures academic year is September 1 through August 31, therefore, a student graduating on or after September 1 would be able to continue taking the ACT/SAT through June of that school year.

Applicants must complete the Initial Student Florida Financial Aid Application (FFAA)* during his/her last year in high school. A student may apply online at beginning December 1st of his/her last year in high school, but must apply prior to graduation to be considered.
