FloridaShines provides an array of academic advising, career readiness and online learning resources for students and parents. These state-funded academic advising services make it easy for high school students to prepare for college or a career after graduation by enabling them to evaluate their progress toward high school graduation, college and career readiness and Bright Futures scholarship eligibility. In addition, they can explore Florida's college and university offerings (both traditional and online programs), learn about financial aid and apply for admission. Dual enrolled high school students and those in accelerated education programs can even access online library resources used within Florida's colleges and universities. www.floridashines.org
Scholarship: A sum of money awarded to a student in order to help him or her further his or her education. Instead of a loan, which accrues interest, or need-based financial aid, which is usually doled out by universities, scholarships are gifts that don't need to be paid back. Scholarship money can come from any number of sources including federal & state governments, corporations, universities or any organization with a little goodwill. Visit you zoned school’s website frequently for local and national scholarship opportunities. You can also use free scholarship search engines such as those found at: https://www.fastweb.com/, https://www.scholarships.com/, https://studentscholarships.org/
