Eligibility

To qualify for the Build Florida Scholarship, a student must meet the following criteria:

  • Be Enrolled in any of our Trades Programs with a start date of June 27, 2022.
  • Must remain continuously enrolled in that Diploma or Bachelor’s degree program until completion.
  • Maintain a satisfactory academic progress.
  • Be current on all financial obligations to FTC.

FTC will evaluate and determine whether a student continues to qualify for the Build Florida Scholarship at the end of each term. A qualified student will receive the Build Florida Scholarship in the form of a retroactive disbursement of $200-$333 (depending on the program) per term up to the maximum amount awarded, not to exceed the amount of tuition and fees that were to be financed by debt and charged to the student for the applicable program, after first applying for any other financial assistance. FTC will not issue refunds to a student as a result of receiving the Build Florida Scholarship. Rather, the Build Florida Scholarship will be proportionately reduced to avoid a resulting credit balance.

Completed applications must be submitted to the Financial Aid Department prior to the start of the program. Awards will be made on a first-come, first-served basis and will be based on applying and meeting all qualifying criteria.
