The Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program establishes three lottery-funded scholarships to reward Florida high school graduates for high academic achievement.

A required conversion to a new technology platform will delay students’ official Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program Early Evaluation notices (both Eligible and Ineligible). Public high school students may access FloridaShines to check their scholarship status. Other students may request unofficial Florida Bright Futures Evaluation Reports from their high school counselors.
