Going to FSU, FAMU, FGCU, SFCC, TCC or UF?

SENIORS: As you may already know or have read on their website,, the Southern Scholarship Foundation have scholarship houses serving students attending the Florida State University, Florida A&M University, Florida Gulf Coast University, Santa Fe College, Tallahassee Community College, and University of Florida

On average, their residents save $7,000-$10,000 per year. They accept applications year-round, but priority deadlines are March 1st for Fall and October 1st for Spring. If you are planning to attend one of these Universities and have the following qualifications we encourage you to apply:

·        Financial Need (determined on the FAFSA)
·        A 3.0 cumulative GPA or higher (unweighted)
·        Strong Character (3 letters of recommendation, list of activities/accomplishments, a personal essay)

See MRS. CURRAN in guidance (office/room 145) for a letter outlining some program specifics, as well as, the scholarship application, and flyer.
