Florida State Scholarships
Florida State University is a public university located in Tallahassee, Florida. As a large institution with over 40,000 students, Florida State offers a diverse array of majors throughout 16 different colleges.
Florida State offers a number of merit-based scholarships for high school students:
University Freshman Scholarship
This scholarship is great because all accepted freshman are automatically considered for it. How great is that? These scholarships are worth $2,400 per year and can be renewed for four years at FSU.
It should also be noted that students who apply for admission for November 1st will be given priority consideration. If you are considering Florida State, this is a great reason to get your application in early!
Presidential Scholars Program
All accepted freshman who receive the University Freshman Scholarship can also be considered for the FSU Presidential Scholars Program. The Scholars Program has a separate application and winning students receive:
- An additional $2,400 per year
- $12,000 for educational enrichment opportunities
- Out-of-state applicants will also receive a full out-of-state tuition waiver to get in-state tuition (this is a big deal because in-state tuition is roughly $15,000 less than out-of-state tuition per year!)
Tuition Reduction Scholarships
Accepted out-of-state students will be automatically considered for Out-of-State Scholarships (no separate application is required). These scholarships can offer a full or partial waiver of the out-of-state tuition. As mentioned, in-state tuition is roughly $15,000 less per year, so even a partial waiver is a great deal for students.
FSU also offers scholarships to students who demonstrate a strong ability in music, dance or theater. Consideration for these scholarships is talent-based and requires an audition.
Other Scholarship Opportunities
Florida State offers other scholarship opportunities that are both need-based and merit-based. You can check them out on their website!
