Bright Future Changes

November 21st, 2011 by flanews

A plan to encourage college students to finish their undergraduate degrees faster will be laid out for lawmakers before the end of the year.

One of the changes would allow students who finish their degrees early to use their left over Bright Futures scholarships to pay for grad school. Ed Moore, President of Independent Colleges and Universities of Florida, says it would free up enrollment space for more students and keep the best and brightest in the state.

“It would help entice them to go to Florida grad schools. If you go to grad school in Florida you are more likely to stay in Florida and work in Florida,” said Moore.

Moore is a member of the Higher Educating Coordinating Council in Florida. The group will give their plans to lawmakers before the end of the year.
