Family Empowerment Scholarship

Family Empowerment Scholarship


On May 11, 2021, Governor DeSantis signed House Bill 7045 into law, resulting in several changes to the state funded scholarship programs, including an extensive expansion of the Family Empowerment Scholarship Program. Our office is working closely with the scholarship funding organizations, AAA Scholarship Foundation and Step Up For Students, to ensure appropriate and effective implementation of these changes. We know you are eager to learn what these changes mean for you and your families, as these changes take effect July 1, 2021.

Please be on the lookout for future website updates and additional guidance from the Department of Education and the scholarship funding organizations.
