The Robert C. Byrd Honors Scholarship Program was established by the United States Congress to provide scholarships to outstanding high school seniors who show promise of continued academic achievement. This program is offered through the U.S. Department of Education and administered by the Florida Department of Education (FDOE), Office of Student Financial Assistance (OSFA).
As established by the Department of Education, the maximum annual award amount is $1500 per year.
Program funds may be used at eligible institutions across the United States.
Note: the federal government is currently not funding the Robert C. Byrd Honors Scholarship Program, and it is unlikely that the state of Florida will elect to fund the program independently.
