Florida Student Assistance Grant (FSAG)


FSAG, Florida’s largest need-based grant program, provides assistance to degree-seeking, resident, undergraduate students who demonstrate “exceptional” financial need.

Funds are awarded based on full-time enrollment, but pro-rated each semester if enrolled less than full-time.

The annual award amount may vary each academic year. The minimum annual award amount is $200 and up to a maximum of $2,610 for those with the lowest EFC. 1
