Am I Qualified?

The minimum qualifications for a State College of Florida Foundation scholarship are:

Must be attending State College of Florida
Must be enrolled in at least 6 credit hours in a degree program
Must maintain a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA

Most of our scholarships have more specific or rigid requirements based on the donor’s criteria.

So… How does it work?

Our generous SCF Foundation donors make your scholarship funding possible. After you submit your application, a committee of reviewers scores your application. Based on these scores, scholarships are awarded to SCF degree-seeking students who meet the individual scholarship criteria.

SCF Foundation scholarships are awarded by semester (Fall and Spring) unless otherwise noted in your offer e-mail. Our scholarships are designed to pay about half of the tuition and fees at State College of Florida (unless otherwise stated). They are not “full-ride” scholarships.

I’ve applied. Now what?

Once you’ve finished your general application and completed any additional “Apply-to” scholarships that may be open, your application is in review! We review hundreds of applications each year, so we ask for your patience. This process takes up to five months from the day the application officially closes. We ask that you check your SCF student e-mail frequently. Once your award notification is sent, you will have a two-week window to review and accept your offer(s) and upload your thank-you letter(s). If you do not complete those steps within two weeks, your offer(s) may be pulled and offered to another student. Time is of the essence! 

Additional scholarship funds may become available later in the academic year. Keep checking your SCF student email account weekly in case you are sent a late award offer.
