Scholarships, Grants, and Campus Employment
Scholarships and Grants can be a great resource in helping students to pay for college because they do not have to be repaid. While Florida College has many scholarship opportunities for our students, we also want to empower you to seek outside scholarships in your community. Campus Employment is another avenue to funding your education. Take a look at the scholarship, grant, and employment opportunities that may available to you.

Looking in your local community for outside scholarships may be the most beneficial place to search for scholarships. Local community and civic organizations (like American Legion, Boys & Girls Clubs, 4-H Clubs, etc.) may offer scholarships. Also, talk with your employer and your parents’ employers to see what scholarship opportunities they may have. Finally, consult your high school guidance counselor regarding possible scholarships that you may qualify for.
