Additional Information: Take Stock in Children is a comprehensive program that helps low-income children succeed by providing college and vocational scholarships, volunteer mentors, student advocates/case managers, tutoring, early intervention and long-term support, high standards, parental involvement, and community support. If a student moves to another county after being accepted into the TSIC program in his/her original county, he/she will not lose the scholarship; it will be transferred to the student's new county of residence. In order to receive the scholarship, the student must attend a college that will accept a Florida Prepaid Tuition Scholarship. Most Florida and non-Florida colleges are eligible as long as they are not-for-profit and are accredited.

Award Amount: Each child selected for the TSIC program receives a four-year college tuition or vocational scholarship purchased by the Florida Prepaid Tuition Program. This scholarship is in the form of a 2+2 scholarship, which entitles the student to two years of tuition at a community college and two years at a university. The student will receive his/her scholarship if he/she has fulfilled the terms of the contract he/she signed when enrolling in the program and when he/she has graduated from high school.  The total dollars awarded for this scholarship is $20,000.
