2020 Florida State Scholarships

Florida State net price is at $15,664.00 per year and will likely continue climbing like all colleges around the U.S. There are various ways to combat the steep rises in college tuition, and scholarships can be a key ingredient in reducing the overall cost of Florida State University. Florida State awards an average of $20,750.00 to each student, which can help alleviate some of the financial burden. However, most families will need to find other sources of funding to bridge the remaining tuition gap. In addition to the annual tuition, Florida State students can expect to pay $N/A in housing costs and $N/A in meal plan costs - if you chose to live in the surrounding area of Tallahassee, then those costs could be even higher.

89% of full-time students receive local or institutional grants with an average award size of $6,628.00. Furthermore, 27% of students receive federal grants with an average amount of $4,879.00.
