How does hard work pay off when it comes to the Big 3 Florida Schools?

If you are talking college basketball, they made it to the big tournament this year.

When it comes to affording an education, 38,750 Florida students on average receive Bright Futures Scholarships every year.

That means more students earn the opportunity to achieve higher education and get to make a difference on and off the court.

Competition aside, that’s a win-win all around.

This year marks the Florida Lottery’s 30th birthday and the agency is celebrating with an impressive milestone – more than $33 billion generated for education in Florida! These unprecedented contributions have also enabled more than 775,000 students to attend college through the Lottery-funded Bright Futures Scholarship Program.

For the past 30 years, the Florida Lottery has proven itself to be a dedicated and dependable partner to Florida’s students and schools, generating more than $1 billion for Florida’s Educational Enhancement Trust Fund (EETF) for each of the past 16 consecutive years.

While these funds represent only a small portion of the state’s overall education budget, the positive impact is felt in communities from the Panhandle to the Keys.

The Bright Futures Scholarship Program, which is primarily funded by the Florida Lottery, was created in 1997 by the Florida Legislature to assist students in pursuing postsecondary educational and career goals. Since the program’s inception, the Lottery has contributed more than $5 billion to send over 775,000 students to college.
