William L. Boyd, IV, Florida Resident Access Grant Program


Program Description

The William L. Boyd, IV, Florida Resident Access Grant (FRAG) Program provides tuition assistance to Florida undergraduate students attending an eligible private, non-profit Florida college or university. FRAG is a decentralized state of Florida program, which means that each participating institution determines application procedures, deadlines, and student eligibility.

Initial Eligibility Requirements to Receive Funding

The student will:

  • Be a Florida resident and a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen. A student’s residency and citizenship status are determined by the postsecondary institution. Questions regarding such status should be directed to the financial aid office or admissions office of the institution the student plans to attend.
  • Not owe a repayment or be in default under any state or federal grant, loan, or scholarship program unless satisfactory arrangements to repay have been made.
  • Not have previously received a baccalaureate degree.
  • Enroll for a minimum of 12 credit hours per term at an eligible Florida college or university in a baccalaureate degree program.
  • Meet Florida’s general eligibility requirements for receipt of state aid.
  • Not be enrolled in a program of study leading to a degree in theology or divinity.

Applying for an Award

The student will meet the application procedures established by the participating institution.  Applications may be obtained at the financial aid offices of eligible Florida colleges and universities.

Student Award Renewal

  • A renewal applicant must have earned a minimum institutional cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale, and earned the equivalent of 12 credit hours for each term an award was received during the academic year.
  • Eligibility is determined at the end of the second semester or third quarter of each academic year. Credit hours earned during the previous summer may be counted toward the total number of credit hours required.
  • A student should consult the postsecondary institution for additional renewal requirements which are established by the institution.
