Equal Opportunity Education

Step Up For Students is dedicated to providing scholarships to disadvantaged Florida students to attend the school of their choice. We believe all children deserve the opportunity to attend a school that best fits their needs – especially our most vulnerable students who are lower-income, victims of bullying, have unique abilities, and those who identify as LGBTQ. Step Up For Students puts scholarships in parents’ hands to make the best decision for their children and is proud to have provided nearly 900,000 scholarships over the last 19 years. This year, across five programs, we are helping 144,000 students, most of whom are minorities, with scholarships totaling nearly $1 billion.
