Hope Scholarships for Students Who Have Experienced Bullying

Educational Opportunity

The Hope Scholarship, created to support families whose K-12 students have experienced bullying, is now merged with the Family Empowerment Scholarship for Educational Options (FES-EO) and Florida Tax Credit Scholarship (FTC) programs.

Families interested in a 2024-25 scholarship should apply through the FES-EO and FTC programs now. Though renewal families will be applying as a NEW FTC, FES-EO or Transportation Stipend student, they will still be granted priority for awarded status as a renewal student.
