How do the Florida Financial Aid's BF and CDDV scholarships work together?

So I have two 100% VA disabled veteran parents and currently meet all of the requirements for the highest level of Bright Futures. I SHOULD be expecting to get the FAS Bright Futures Scholarship and the Scholarship for Children and Spouses of Deceased or Disabled Veterans. I was wondering, since these scholarships both come from the same source, how they will work together. Will I only be able to receive one of the two even though I applied for both on the FFAA? Also, will UF not award me a merit scholarship because I will already be receiving a bit of funding through the state anyways? Should I still worry about applying for more scholarships? I'm pretty confused on how this is all going to work out.

Also, I realize that I've posted under UF's forums but that is because it is my first choice and the college I indicated on my FFAA application.

Any and all help is appreciated! Thankyou.

    I would guess they stack, with CDDV paying out first, covering tuition and fees, and then BF. However, go ahead and contact UF and ask. ;)

    No matter the response, apply to both.

    Good Luck!

    @Gator88NE You're right, it looks like I should email them directly considering my counselors have no idea how the CDDV scholarship works anyways. I applied to both and am hoping for the best!

    Thank you!
