Florida Academic Scholars bonus raised to $375

I just got this email from osfa@fldoe.org, the Florida Department of Education:

Dear Mr. Thripp:

The 2008-09 Florida Academic Scholars (FAS) college-related expense allowance that is specified annually by the Florida Legislature in the General Appropriations Act will be $375 for the 2008-09 academic year, prorated by terms and hours.

If you have further questions, please contact the Bright Futures office toll-free at 1-888-827-2004.

The Academic Scholars award is the top tier of the Florida BrightFutures scholarships. If you get this award like I do, you know last semester it was dropped to $225 from $300, so it’s good to see it going back up, with an extra $75. This is in addition to tuition.

My books were $348 this semester, so $375 more than covers it. Yes!

My Daytona State College education has been going well, keeping me busy though. I have a Physics test and a speech on the early history of photography on Monday. I’m going to film the latter and post it here after. Now, back to studying. 😎
