Classroom teachers can receive up to $6,000. However, if the number of eligible teachers statewide causes bonuses to exceed the total amount of the legislative appropriation, the Florida Department of Education will prorate the per-teacher scholarship amount. Please read the Q and A document for additional details to assist in understanding the program’s parameters and provisions.
Classroom teachers must submit a completed Florida’s Best and Brightest Teacher Scholarship Application Form with the requested documentation to Marla Grant in Human Resources, by November 1, 2018. Note, previous recipients must submit the complete application form only.
