“This scholarship program is part of our commitment to helping families save for college, and we encourage all eligible Florida families to enter to win,” said Foundation Board Chairman Duane Ottenstroer. “Entering is not just a chance to win two years of college; it is an opportunity to learn about how saving early can motivate students to prepare academically for college, and help them reduce or avoid student loan debt.”
The 2-Year Florida College Plan is one of five available Florida Prepaid Plans, which all include tuition and other specified fees. A family can purchase Plans all at once, over five years or in monthly installments. Learn more at http://www.myfloridaprepaid.com/.
Florida Prepaid’s 2-Year Florida College Plan covers tuition and other specified fees for 60 lower division credit hours at a Florida College. This plan offers a child the opportunity to earn an associate’s degree or certification in any number of fields, and is an excellent springboard to a fulfilling career or further education. A student earning an associate’s degree from a Florida College is guaranteed admission to a State University in Florida.
Many students are going in debt across the country trying to obtain the necessary postsecondary degree needed for career success. Last March, the Federal Reserve reported student debt across the U.S. at about $1.2 trillion. Meanwhile, more than two-thirds of new alumni have debt, at an average of $35,000 per graduate. In Florida, the average debt load for those with college loans is $24,017.
