Family Empowerment Scholarship Deadlines

Please note that the deadlines for filing an application and private school enrollment are statutory deadlines. The Department cannot make exceptions if these deadlines are missed. Failure to complete attendance verification will result in a postponement of scholarship payments until the next scheduled payment period. Private schools participating in the Florida Empowerment Scholarship Program must meet the deadlines set by the Scholarship Funding Organizations in order to receive payment. For the 2022-2023 school year:

Your child must be enrolled by: Aug 2 Oct 2 Jan 2 Mar 2
For the school to receive payment on: Sept 1 Nov 1 Feb 1 Apr 1
Maximum scholarship amount for the rest of the school year: 100% 75% 50% 25%
Payment Period: July 1-Sept 30 Oct 1-Dec 31 Jan 1-Feb 28 Mar 1-June 30
  • The scholarship tuition amount is the state maximum amount (based on the student's matrix cost factor).
  • The scholarship tuition amount is divided into four quarterly payments for the school year.
  • If the student is enrolled after a deadline, the student will not be eligible to receive that quarter's scholarship payments, but will have met the deadline to receive payment the next quarter.
