A scholarship is an award of financial aid for a student to further their education. Scholarships are awarded based upon various criteria, which usually reflect the values and purposes of the donor or founder of the award. Scholarship money is not required to be repaid.
Families with low incomes in Florida who are trying to work or get training to work may be eligible for school readiness help.
The School Readiness Program offers financial assistance to low-income families for early child education and care so families can become financially self-sufficient and their young children can be successful in school in the future.
Services vary based on individual need and range from extended day to extended year and school age care in some instances.
The program takes into account a child’s physical, social, emotional and intellectual development; involves parents as their child’s first teacher; prepares children to be ready for school; and gives parents information about child development and other topics of interest.
