This grant program provides tuition assistance to Florida undergraduate students attending an eligible private, non-profit institution (such as FHCHS). The student (or the parents if the student is a dependent) must be a Florida resident for a minimum of twelve consecutive months prior to the beginning of the academic term for which funds are requested. The dates for each term will be listed on the online financial aid system. Students must be U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens and must be enrolled for at least 12 credits (9 credits for AS Nursing students) by the end of the drop/add period and maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). The student cannot have a prior Bachelor's degree, be in default, or owe a repayment on federal or state grants or loans. The grant is available for nine trimesters of undergraduate work. Funding is not available during the summer trimester. To receive the FRAG for the following school year, the student must maintain a minimum 2.00 cumulative GPA and must have successfully completed 12 credits (9 credits if A.S. Nursing) for each term he or she received the FRAG. Credits from the summer, fall, and spring trimesters are used to determine credits successfully completed.
Students must complete the FAFSA and the online FHCHS Financial Aid Application and must be received by the Financial Aid Office by the end of the drop/add period (the last day to drop with no record) of the trimester for which the grant is requested. The grant is awarded in the fall and spring trimesters only. The amount of the award is specified each year by the Florida Legislature.
