While there are no minimum academic criteria for Presidential Pundits, applicants must be classified as Florida residents for education purposes by our February Decision Day. Past recipients have demonstrated strong academic achievement that moves within the upper limit of 50% or more of our enrolled student profiles, combined with a diverse and employed resume and essay response.

Applicants are reviewed for scholarships using the same equivalent and academic criteria. No additional materials or update data should be submitted for scholarship application. While there are no minimum criteria for out-of-state scholarships, we should classify applicants as non-Florida residents for tuition purposes by February Decision Day. If your residency classification is updated in Florida after receiving an out-of-state scholarship, you will no longer be eligible and the award will be revoked. Past recipients typically fall within the upper range of 50% or more of our admitted student profiles, combined with a varied and employed re-biography and article feedback. However, there is no guarantee of a scholarship award matching our profile numbers. If selected for our out-of-state scholarship, the offer will be available via email in mid-March.
