Step Up For Students Scholarships
GOOD NEWS! You may now be eligible to apply for Step Up for Students Scholarships! Governor Rick Scott has signed a bill that now allows children entering grades K through 5, who have NOT attended a Florida public school for the 2011-2012 school year, to apply for the Step Up for Students Scholarship for the 2012-2013 school year. This means that K-4th grade students attending virtual, private schools or being home-schooled in 2011-2012 school year may now apply for the 2012-2013 school year. The Florida public school requirement for children entering grades 6 through 12 for the 2012-2013 school year remains the same. We are excited that more families will now have a choice.
When you visit the Step Up for Students website to apply, there is a special tab under "How It Works" just for you.
