Military Families


If you are a member of the United States Armed Forces living in Florida, your child may be eligible for either of the two branches of the Family Empowerment Scholarship Program.

The Education Options branch of the program (FES EO) provides the option for K-12 students to attend a participating private school. Military dependents are exempt from the income qualification and cap on student participation for the program.

The Unique Abilities branch (FES UA) provides families of the students with disabilities as young as 3 years old with access to a personal education savings account (ESA) for their student. An ESA can be used to fund items such as private school tuition and fees, online learning programs, private tutoring, community college costs, higher education expenses and other approved customized learning services and materials. Eligible military dependents are not subject to the cap on student participation for the program.

To apply for either branch of the program, contact one of the approved Scholarship Funding Organizations directly.
