Give Kids A Chance is offering scholarship grants in the amount of $1,250 to high school seniors planning to attend college. The scholarship will be offered to those students graduating from public high schools in the State of Florida. Students who are attending college and who have previously received a grant through the Give Kids A Chance scholarship program will also be eligible to apply for additional grants for each year they remain in college and maintain a minimum grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale (but for no more than 4 years). However, the fact that an applicant may previously have received a scholarship through this program is no assurance that additional scholarship grants will be awarded.
