    The Application

    The application is available beginning October 1. All seniors should complete the FFAA regardless if your intention is to go to college out of state or to a private college. Situations change and if you complete the FFAA during your senior year, you can access the funds if you return to Florida.

    It is highly recommended that seniors submit their community services hours to the guidance office BEFORE winter break.
