2016-2017 Best and Brightest Teacher Scholarship Program

The State of Florida Legislators established the Best and Brightest Teacher Scholarship Program to attract, retain, and reward high academic achievers in the teaching profession (Florida Statute 1012.731). As this is a State funded opportunity Brevard County School District is not responsible for setting scholarship funding amounts or program restrictions.


School district and charter school teachers meeting the Florida Statute 1012.01(2)(a) classroom teacher definition, who have been evaluated as highly effective, and who have earned college entrance exam scores at or above the 80th percentile, based on the National Rank in effect when the assessment was taken, may be eligible for the scholarship.
