PFLAG Scholarship

LGBT? Scholarhip for you!!!

PFLAG of Jacksonville is offering scholarships intended to provide recognition and affirmation to outstanding lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons in the Jacksonville metropolitan area (Baker, Clay, Duval, Nassau, and St. Johns Counties) and to aid them in their pursuit of post-secondary education.  It is PFLAG’s aim through these awards to foster in our community and throughout our culture a more positive image of LGBT persons.
All applicants must:
 Be sixteen years of age or older and have completed high school by June 2011.
 Have a current permanent home address in the Jacksonville metropolitan area or be currently attending a college or university in the Jacksonville metropolitan area.
 Be registered for full-time attendance (defined as 12 semester hours or more for undergraduate programs and 9 semester hours or more for graduate programs) at a post-secondary educational institution by August 1, 2011


This year all 9th and 10th grade students must have an ePEP. Legislation requires that those who arrive in high school without a plan be assisted to create one. This may include students who transferred in from another state, came from private school, were home schooled, etc.

Legislation also requires that students review their ePEP at least once each year.  Reviewing the ePEP every year and making updates as needed keeps the plan current and helps the student stay on target for reaching their educational goal, which may change as the they progress through high school.

Your ePep are located at  This is the only place where you can keep up with your Bright Futures Scholarship eligibility and you can also use this account to send of those in state university applications.
