					MIGRANT STUDENT SCHOLARSHIPS                                         (compiled by Brigita Gahr, January, 2007)

Now that high school seniors have started their final semester, it is time for them to begin to apply for
scholarships. Florida seniors who qualify for Migrant Education Program services are encouraged to apply for
the following scholarships for migrant students. Undocumented students may apply for any of these
scholarships, except CAMP and the Farmworker Jobs and Education Program (considered federal/state
government aid). Local Migrant Education Programs may offer additional scholarships for migrant students
residing in their districts.

Please remind students that most scholarships require proof of acceptance into a technical institute, college or
university, therefore they need to apply to post-secondary institutions NOW!
