<p>Has anyone heard of possible merit scholarships for out of state students at Florida? I know they are rare, but some may exist.</p>

<p>My stats are ACT 35, 4.0 UW GPA, 4.63 UF GPA, class rank 3/486</p>

<p>With fantastic stats like that I hope you applied for the Lombardi program. Other than that or NMF I don't think UF gives much merit aid. Best of luck.</p>

<p>I though Lombardi was only for Florida residents?</p>

<p>Hmmm, the criteria on the site says: (University</a> of Florida Honors Program: John V. Lombardi Scholarship)</p>

<p>Nominees for this award will rank at or near the top of their class. Other criteria for selection include:</p>

<pre><code>* Academic Achievement
* Service to the community
* Extracurricular involvement
* Demonstration of leadership
* Evidence of strong moral character
* Preference will be given to Florida residents

<p>I took that to mean that OOS still had a shot, but this University</a> of Florida News - UF chooses eight students for Lombardi Scholars Program shows that all eight are in state. I guess you're right</p>

<p>That's unfortunate, but I guess it saves me the trouble of applying. Are you a National Merit Semifinalist? The scholarship amounts to just about full tuition for OOS.</p>

<p>No, I'm not nmsf which is unfortunate.</p>
