This public school student earned over $600,000 in scholarships from her own state!

This Florida teen has a passion for working with students with disabilities. Her passion not only drove her activities but drove her college search and helped to determine where she would call home for the next 4 years.

Grace’s Tip for students: Be consistent with your favorite activities - develop your passions, so when you apply to college, your goals are supported by the proof of your activities.

A tip from Grace that parents can encourage in your teens: Do NOT be afraid to shoot high, apply to some ‘reach’ schools -- do NOT fear rejection. You never know what colleges want! Put yourself out there!

Another interesting tip for students and parents: Florida has many special merit aid programs to entice their best and brightest to stay in-state for college. Learn what programs YOUR state offers and make sure you do the work to qualify!
