Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program

  • The Florida Department of Education recognizes the Cambridge program as an official acceleration mechanism and is included in the Bright Futures Scholarship Program as an additional means to earn scholarship monies. 
  • Students who earn the AICE Diploma, and have 100 community service hours, automatically receive the Academic Scholars Award. 

Students who complete the Cambridge program’s curriculum, but do not earn the AICE diploma can still earn the Academic Scholars Award with appropriate SAT and ACT test scores.
