NEVER PAY ANYONE FOR SCHOLARSHIP ASSISTANCE!
The Class of 2011 documented $1,874,812.00 in university merit offers; $667,812.00 in federal grants; and $87,562.00 in community scholarships. Additionally, in Bright Futures funding, they were awarded 9 Florida Academic Scholarships, 100 Florida Medallion Scholarships and 4 Gold Seal Scholarships! We challenge the Class of 2013 to exceed these achievements.
