As of December 1st, 2015 the Bright Futures application became available for the Class of 2016 in the state of Florida. This is one of the few scholarships out there that will not retract the award once it is given to a student during their senior year. It is also one of the easiest applications: Only 34 questions need to be answered (mostly demographic information) and submitted. After that, a student just needs to make sure their school has the most up-to-date information regarding GPA, ACT/SAT scores, and volunteer hours. Remember, a student has until the last day of school to qualify for this award. See below for a application help sheet regarding each question asked on the application.
