  • One of the best things about the Florida Gold Seal Scholarship is that there is no set limit on how many students can receive this grant.
  • As many as qualify can use these funds to continue their education in whatever capacity they wish, university, community college or trade school

  • You can only make 1 C as a semester grade in Culinary Arts and still qualify for FGSS.
  • Here are the scenarios
    • 1C and 5A = 3.66
    • 1B and 5A = 3.83
    • 2B and 4A = 3.66
    • 3B and 3A – 3.5
  • Anything less is not acceptable and will ruin your chances of earning FGSS.
what is community service
What is community service?
  • Community service hours are unpaid activities—time given freely of one’s own will and not because the member is required to do so.
  • Community service is designed to improve the quality of life for our community.
  • Community service can occur in such fields as health care, child care, literacy training, education (including tutuorial services), welfare, food service, social services, transportation, housing and neighborhood improvement, public safety, crime prevention and control, recreation, rural development, and community improvement.
