In 1997, the Florida Legislature created the Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program. This Florida Lottery-funded scholarship rewards students for their academic achievements during high school by providing funding for them to pursue postsecondary educational and career goals in Florida. The Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program is an umbrella scholarship that houses three scholarships: Florida Academic Scholars Award, Florida Medallion Scholars Award, and Florida Gold Seal Scholars Award. At Our Lady of Lourdes Academy, the Florida Gold Seal does not generally apply, since we are a college preparatory high school.
