Florida Resident Scholarships
The following scholarships are available to qualified students who are residents of Florida.
The Florida State Legislature created the income-based Florida Tax Credit Scholarship Program* to assure that low-income children have more learning options.
For the 2022-23 school year, Florida Tax Credit Scholarship Program Students who qualify may receive up to $8,000 for private school tuition and fees.
In May 2019, the Family Empowerment Scholarship was created by the Florida State Legislature to further help middle-class families attend a school of choice.
Scholarship award amounts for the 2022-23 school year are allocated based upon family income. The current eligibility threshold is up to $77,250, for a family of 4. Active Duty service personnel in Florida have no threshold.
The Florida Tax Credit Scholarship allows families to choose between financial assistance toward private school tuition and fees, or with transportation costs to attend a public school in another district. The Family Empowerment Scholarship may only be used towards private school tuition and fees.
Families interested in the Florida Tax Credit or Family Empowerment Scholarship may apply using the Florida Prep School Code 0880 on the website www.stepupforstudents.org Step up For Students is a nonprofit organization that helps administer the Florida State scholarship programs.
