Florida Senate’s 2018 legislative priorities


Last year, we successfully secured funding to expand the Bright Futures Academic Scholar Award to cover 100 percent of tuition and fees and a $300 book stipend for spring and fall semesters.

This year, our goal is to make this change permanent and to restore the Bright Futures Medallion Award to cover 75 percent of tuition and fees.

It is my hope that this expansion, combined with our historic increase in need-based student financial aid, will help students plan their investment in a college or university education, alleviating some of the financial insecurity that leads to delays in graduation.

Florida Senate President Joe Negron
