It is that time of year again! As you may recall from our previous correspondence, the Southern Scholarship Foundation (SSF) provides rent-free scholarship housing for qualified students demonstrating academic achievement (with a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA), financial need (as identified on the FAFSA), and good character. With our scholarship, students save $10,000-$12,000 per year.
We have 27 scholarship houses on six Florida College Campuses (Florida A&M, Florida Gulf Coast University, Florida State University, Tallahassee Community College, Santa Fe College, and the University of Florida) and are looking to extend our recruitment efforts. For Fall 2015, we are expecting to award roughly 100-150 spots available among all of our 6 campuses - That’s $1,000,000 to $1,800,000 worth of scholarships available.
Our scholarship application is now 100% online. We hope that you can share this news with any eligible students you may know.
We accept applications year-round… April 1st is our priority deadline for Fall 2015. The sooner they submit a completed application, the better! Please spread the word to students, department chairs, co-workers, etc.!
