The mission of The Florida State Elks Association HOPE Scholarship is to provide financial support for the educational needs of Florida high school seniors without which they would not be able to achieve their educational goals.
The scholarship targets students who are not in the top 10% of their graduating class but have managed to maintain a minimum of 3.3 unweighted GPA. These students have demonstrated leadership through participation in school activities, community service and citizenship. Consideration is given to those students who have shouldered extra responsibility such as working throughout their high school careers to help provide support of siblings or family.
The student must be in graduating class of high school or its related equivalent. They must also be an American citizen and a resident of Florida. The FSEA HOPE Scholarship may be used for a vocational or technical training school as well as college or university study.
Students are scored on a total of a possible 1500 points for financial need, scholarship, employment, leadership, an essay, community service, honors and awards and extracurricular activities.
