What about the Bright Futures Scholarship?
Eligibility criteria for a Florida Bright Futures Scholarship specify that a student must have earned “a standard Florida high school diploma…unless the student completes a home education program according to s. 1002.41.” [Section 1009.531 (1) (b), Florida Statutes]
In lieu of the diploma, all home educated students must be registered with the district where they reside for grades 11 and 12.
