Federal Financial Aid
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is a federal application that a student must complete to receive any grants, loans, or work study to help pay for college. This form has to be completed each academic year by the student and parent, in order to be eligible to receive financial assistance. The application opened October 1. Every college has a different deadline date, so students are encouraged to check with each college they are applying to.
Florida Financial Aid
The Florida Financial Aid Application (FFAA) is a state application that a student must complete in order to qualify for any scholarships or grants that Florida awards. The most popular scholarship is Bright Futures in which students can be awarded money based off their GPA, ACT/SAT scores, and community service hours. Seniors can apply for Florida financial aid after October 1 and it is due no later than August 31 after their senior year. Students graduating mid-year must have the application in by August 31st of the year they will graduate in order to apply the funds for spring semester.

Local Senior Scholarship Meeting at Each High School
The Flagler County Education Foundation has partnered with Flagler Schools to create an online scholarship platform. We currently have over 100 local scholarships worth close to $500,000. All seniors planning to continue their education should complete the online application as it is required in order to receive any of the local senior scholarships.
This platform will allow students to complete one online application, send requests for recommendation letters directly to the person writing the letter, allow them to upload their FAFSA and transcript, and it will even allow them to write a thank you note directly to the donor providing the funding for their scholarship.
There will be meetings at both high schools and via zoom:
Wednesday, October 28th at 6:30pm in the Matanzas High School Cafeteria
Thursday, October 29th at 6:30pm in the FPC Bulldog Learning Commons
Please RSVP as soon as possible to email@example.com. In order to be compliant with our COVID-19 policy, we will only be able to have 50 people at the in-person meeting. If you prefer to use a virtual option (or once we reach capacity) you can join via zoom. Please refer to www.flagleredfoundation.org for the zoom link or go to our Facebook page (facebook.com/flaglercountyeducationfoundation).
If you have any questions or need any help with anything concerning local senior scholarships, please feel free to contact Rebecca Bower at firstname.lastname@example.org or (386)437-7526x1126.
