With the demise of the OOS Benacquisto NMF scholarships to FL universities, let’s see what other opportunities emerge for OOS NMFs. Seems like a great opportunity for FSU, Miami, UCF and others to recruit OOS NMFs who in the past may have gone to UF, as it’s unlikely UF comes up with any OOS NMF specific scholarship of its own.
Checking the current info available on their web sites, FSU does not reference any new scholarship. It just contains a link to the state Benacquisto site, which scholarship of course is no longer available to OOS students. But it is still a bit early. FSU may come up with something as the new school year approaches. With an OOS tuition waiver, FSU is still very affordable; but an additional NMF scholarship could make it very attractive for my S22 and others.
UCF does mention that OOS NMFs are not eligible for Benacquisto but are eligible for additional scholarships. But it does not seem to say what those are or how much. U of Miami has no info other than a small NMF scholarship.
As y’all visit these schools, ask what they are going to do about OOS NMFs, if anything, and post it here. We’ll be looking hard at FSU and Miami so will post info when we get some.
