Bright Futures Scholarships

Can I receive both Florida Bright Futures and Florida Pre-Paid?

Yes, and this is how it works..

Florida Bright Futures (FBF) funds are received from the State of Florida at the end of the first week of classes each semester. FBF will send funds in the amount of the scholarship you will be receiving to cover tuition.

Florida Academic Scholar (FAS) recipients are paid 100% of applicable fees* as follows:

USF Tampa $208.69 per credit hour
USF St. Petersburg $208.69 per credit hour
USF Sarasota-Manatee $208.69 per credit hour
*Applicable fees include: activity & service, health, athletic, financial aid, capital improvement, transportation, technology and tuition differential.

FAS recipients will also receive $300 per semester (fall and spring only) for other college related expenses.

Florida Medallion Scholar (FMS) recipients are paid $77 per credit hour (fall and spring only).

After the first week of classes each term, your FBF will be applied to pay charges posted to your OASIS student account.

The University Controller's Office (UCO) administers your Florida Pre-Paid (FPP) account in the Cashier's Office, SVC 1039.
