Types of Financial Aid
Federal Financial Aid (FAFSA/PELL grant/Title IV Grants)
There are several types of federal grants that you may be eligible for. The most common federal grant is the PELL grant. The maximum Federal PELL grant award for the 2020-2021 year is $6,345. Some students may be eligible for a full PELL grant, while others may qualify for a partial PELL grant. Grant money is free money to cover the costs of your education. Grants do not need to be paid back.
Programs that are less than 600 clock hours (EMT & Firefighter) do not qualify for FAFSA/PELL grant funding.
To be considered for federal financial aid, you must fill out the Federal Application for Student Aid (FAFSA).

Florida State Scholarships (Bright Futures)
If you are a Florida high school graduate who was awarded a Florida State grant or scholarship such as Bright Futures, we will need a copy of your current eligibility letter.
