PURPOSE

To establish the criteria and procedures for awarding and renewing institutional Talent Grants.

Rules of Eligibility:

Students must participate fully in the activity required for the Talent Grant and must enroll in a minimum
of six credits each term. Student on athletic grants must be enrolled in twelve or more credits each term.
Talent Grants are awarded by academic year or by term.

All Talent Grant applicants must file a FAFSA and complete the financial aid process. Returning college
students must have a 2.0 FCCJ Talent Grant GPA. Talent Grant GPA measures grade point average in all
courses, including remedial taken at FCCJ.

Talent Grants must be processed prior to the last week of a semester in order for Talent Grant recipients to
receive reimbursement for the current semester.

All Talent Grant recipients will be allowed to attempt college credits up to the degree requirements of
their program of study. If the recipient is enrolled in remedial courses while on a Talent Grant, the
College will fund up to 12 additional credits for remedial coursework. For purposes of Talent Grant
funding, the number of college credit attempts will be calculated from the date a Talent Grant is first
awarded.

Eligible Talent Grant recipients will have their grant terminated once they have met their degree
requirements or have attempted the credit maximum for their intended major program of study, whichever
comes first. FCCJ will pay for the in-state portion of tuition for third or more attempt courses.

Talent Grant recipients will be eligible to receive Bookstore Authorizations up to the budget limit
authorized for that academic year by the Executive Vice President for Instruction and Student Success.

Continued Eligibility:

At the end of the fall term each year, students must have maintained a 2.0 FCCJ Talent Grant GPA.
Students who fail to maintain a 2.0 FCCJ Talent Grant GPA or do not successfully complete any courses
will have their grant cancelled.

Awards:

For Co-Curricular and Fine Arts Talent Grants, students must be enrolled in a minimum of 6 hours to
receive a half-time grant, a minimum of 9 hours to receive a three-quarter time grant, and a minimum of
12 hours to receive a full-time grant. Each award will reflect tuition and fee increases enacted for the
academic year.

With approval of the Campus President, talent grant budget administrators may, after documented and
exhaustive attempts by a student, award a talent grant to a student who has filed the FAFSA application
but whose parent or guardian will not supply the required IRS documents for the process to be completed.

Out-of-state and international students who are eligible for tuition waivers will be awarded Bookstore
Authorizations up to the budget limit authorized for the academic year by the Executive Vice President
for Instruction and Student Success.

Athletic Talent Grants will cover the cost of tuition and fees up to 36 credit hours for an academic year.
Athletic Talent Grant recipients will be eligible to receive Bookstore Authorizations up to the budget limit
authorized for the academic year by the Executive Vice President for Instruction and Student Success.

Appeals:
Students will have the opportunity to appeal loss of a grant if there are extenuating circumstances. All
appeals will be evaluated by the campus Dean of Student Success. Students will be notified in writing by
the office of the Dean of Student Success. Campuses must notify the Scholarship Office of all decisions
regarding appeals.

Students whose appeals are denied can apply for and be awarded another talent grant after a lapse of one
semester. Such students must meet all criteria established for the particular talent grant area.

Renewal Criteria:
Talent Grant contracts are awarded on an annual or semester basis. A new contract must be signed each
academic year (or each semester if awarded on a semester-by-semester basis). Athletic, Fine Arts and Co-
curricular Talent Grant renewal applicants must file a FASFA and complete the financial aid process.
Talent Grant recipients must have maintained a 2.0 FCCJ Talent Grant GPA and successfully completed
the following number of credit hours. Students who enrolled for only six credits per term must have
completed all six credits successfully.
