Johnson Scholarship

The Johnson Scholarship, funded by the Johnson Scholarship Foundation, is a competitively awarded program which is available to undergraduate students with disabilities enrolled in a State University System of Florida (SUS) institution. Students must meet the following requirements to be considered for scholarship selection:

  • Be a Florida resident for tuition purposes, based on Section 1009.21, Florida Statutes. (Students who receive the out-of-state fee waiver are not eligible as they are not residents for tuition purposes);
  • Be seeking a first baccalaureate degree;
  • Complete a Theodore R. and Vivian M. Johnson Scholarship Application;
  • Meet academic requirements;
  • Provide documentation of the nature and/or extent of a disability; and
  • Submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or Renewal FAFSA form by the required deadline and be determined to have unmet fiscal need. Students may submit a FAFSA.

Be sure that the Federal School Code for your university is designated so that the university has access to your results.

Applications for the 2024-2025 Johnson Scholarship are NOW CLOSED!
