The Good South, Southern lifestyle clothing company based in Greenville, SC, is proud to announce the launch of our third annual scholarship application. As former college admissions counselors, we know how expensive college can be and understand the majority of families cannot outright afford college expenses. At The Good South, we donate a portion of our yearly proceeds to the The Good South Scholarship Fund and are excited to award four scholarships this year ranging from $250 to $500. We are looking for well-rounded applicants who excel both inside and outside the classroom. While scholastic achievement is very important, it is equally important for students to be leaders and have a passion for service.

A Message from University of North Georgia (The Military College of Georgia)-Students May Still Apply
Do you have seniors who are still looking for a challenging and rewarding military program in college?
If so, we're looking for highly qualified seniors who are seriously considering becoming military officers after college; or leadership positions in government agencies such as the FBI, CIA, Department of State; or in global corporations. At UNG, they'll become agile, adaptive, innovative leaders of character, able to succeed in a complex world after they graduate. The leadership competencies (see attached flyer) they develop in our Corps of Cadets will set them apart from the crowd.
We're still accepting applications for admission. We want your senior if:
If they want more info, please tell them to come to campus for a visit and tour. They can speak with my staff about their opportunities.
We are one of only six senior military colleges in the nation, located in Dahlonega, Georgia - home of the mountain phase of the Army's Ranger school, and site of the first major gold rush in the U.S.
We wish you all the best as you finish out this school year!

Redesigned SAT Scores and Bright Futures
OSFA staff had the opportunity to meet with College Board representatives and Board of Governor personnel last week to discuss scoring of the new redesigned SAT (first administered March 2016) for Bright Futures and SUS evaluations. The College Board informed us that the scores from the Redesigned SAT are vastly different from the old SAT and must be treated as if it is a separate entrance exam.
Similar to how OSFA cannot combine scores across the SAT and the ACT, OSFA will NOT be able to take the best scores across the old SAT and the new Redesigned SAT.
When students and parents inquire about the Redesigned SAT, please inform them that those scores cannot be combined with scores from the old SAT when trying to meet Bright Futures eligibility.
We have revised the information included in Chapter 1 of the BF Handbook to reflect this change.
In reference to the Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program, there were TWO other 2016 Florida Legislative Changes signed into law by the Governor Scott on March 24, 2016 that are EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY. For further information, please review our website.
