BRIGHT FUTURES MEDALLION SCHOLARSHIP NOW PAYS 100 PERCENT

 

            MARIANNA—Beginning this fall, Chipola College students who qualify for the Bright Futures Florida Medallion Scholarship will receive 100 percent of tuition and fees.

            The 2006 Florida Legislature increased the award from 75 to 100 percent for Medallion Scholars who attend a community college and enroll in college credit courses leading to an associate degree.

            Students must have a 3.0 GPA from high school and a minimum score of 20 on the ACT to qualify as Medallion Scholars. Florida Academic Scholars—those with a 3.5 GPA and a 28 ACT score—have received 100 percent since the creation of the Bright Futures program in 1997.

            Currently, 316 Chipola students are part of the 75 percent Medallion Scholars group who will now be eligible for the award to cover 100 percent of tuition when they enroll for Fall classes. Also included will be hundreds of recent high school graduates in Calhoun, Holmes, Jackson, Liberty and Washington County who will receive notification from the state's Department of Education in the coming weeks of their status as Medallion Scholarship recipients and the availability of the new 100 percent tuition award. It is anticipated that approximately 450 recent high school graduates from the local area will qualify as Medallion Scholars once final grades and test scores are evaluated and sent to the state.

            Dr. Jayne Roberts, Chipola's Dean of Enrollment Services, says, "Bright Futures is a wonderful tool to motivate and encourage students to attend college in Florida. Tuition and fees for a full-time Chipola student run about $1,700 a year, so this new law will provide parents and students with substantial savings." The change also applies to current students who are renewing their FMS awards.

The state's Medallion scholarship will continue to cover 75 percent of tuition for students who attend a state university. To learn more, visit www.myfloridaeducation.com/brfuture.
