Florida Student Assistance Grant (FSAG)
The Florida Student Assistance Grant (FSAG) Program is a need-based grant program available to degree-seeking, resident, undergraduate students who demonstrate financial need and are enrolled in participating postsecondary institutions. At SFSC an eligible student may be awarded up to $1,000 per term.
To be eligible for this grant, the student must meet these requirements each academic year:
- Complete a FAFSA.
- Your FAFSA should be processed by SFSC's Priority Deadline Date of April 15. These funds are limited; therefore, there is no guarantee you will receive these funds. Apply early!
- Be a U.S. Citizen or an eligible non-citizen.
- Must have been a Florida resident for at least one year.
- Be a degree-seeking student (A.A.S., A.A., A.S., or bachelor's degree program).
- Be enrolled in at least 6 credit hours per term.
- Have a Pell-eligible EFC (Expected Family Contribution), as determined by the FAFSA.
- Have not previously received a bachelor's degree.
- Must not owe a repayment or be in default under any state or federal grant or loan program.
- Must be meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress at SFSC.
FSAG awards have specific completion renewal requirements that are different from the minimum Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements.
