SF Continues to Be the Top Choice for Bright Futures Scholars

September 26, 2019 – Santa Fe College is honored to once again be the top choice for Florida Bright Futures scholars for the 2018 – 2019 academic year.

The Florida Department of Education reports that, just like in 2017 – 2018, SF led the Florida College System in both initial college enrollees (621) as well as renewing enrollees (498) receiving Bright Futures scholarships. Overall nearly $2.4 million was distributed to the 1,119 Bright Futures scholars attending SF.

“Our college serves equally students with academic deficiencies and students who could attend many other colleges in Florida,” said SF President Dr. Jackson Sasser. “I am pleased again to welcome the highest number of Bright Futures students to our college this fall.”

Bright Futures scholarships are earned by high school students who meet a number of academic requirements, including a minimum GPA of 3.0 and at least 75 hours of service to their communities. Bright Futures scholarship recipients often enroll in the Honors Program at SF, which last year had an 88 percent acceptance rate for students transferring into nearby University of Florida.
