Hope Scholarship Mission
The mission of the Florida State Elks Association HOPE Scholarship is to provide financial support for the educational needs of Florida high school seniors without which they would not be able to achieve their educational goals. The scholarship targets students who are not in the top 10% of their graduating class but have managed to maintain a minimum 2.3/4.0 un-weighted GPA to a maximum 3.3/4.0 un-weighted GPA. Students with over a 3.3/4.0 un-weighted GPA do not qualify. These students have demonstrated leadership through participation in school activities, community service, and citizenship. Consideration is given to those students who have shouldered extra responsibility such as working throughout their high school careers to help provide support of siblings or family.
