TALLAHASSEE, FL – – The Florida Association of Postsecondary Schools and Colleges (FAPSC), in partnership with 61 member schools and colleges throughout Florida, has extended the 2009 FAPSC Scholarship deadline to June 30, 2009. Scholarships worth more than $431,000 have already been awarded to 99 students seeking to further their educational goals. Over $1 million worth of scholarships is still available to Florida high school seniors and G.E.D. recipients for future education.
FAPSC coordinates a program that offers more than 600 full, $5,000, and $1,000 tuition scholarships each year to graduating high school seniors and G.E.D. recipients, who are pursuing their postsecondary education at many of Florida’s leading private career schools and colleges. These merit-based scholarships offered through the program range in length from short term diplomas to four year college degrees. With budget cuts at public institutions and economic conditions negatively affecting many Florida families, the FAPSC Board of Directors extended the deadline for students to apply.
“Through the generosity of our institutions, FAPSC provides an opportunity for high
school graduates and G.E.D. recipients to further their education in many of Florida’s
outstanding career education institutions. These schools prepared students to meet
Florida’s growing need for skilled professionals in the fields of education, computer
technology, culinary arts, paralegal services, digital media and medicine. We hope
students will take advantage of this opportunity and contact us for information,” said
Wanda Taylor, FAPSC Deputy Director.
