CF scholarships available for honors students at Lecanto campus


The College of Central Florida is awarding full- and partial-tuition scholarships to full-time students interested in taking honors classes at the Citrus County Campus.

A major component of CF’s Honors Institute, the Community of Scholars Honor Program offers incoming high school graduates two-year tuition scholarships, currently valued at $3,000 per academic year, while offering partial scholarships to those who currently attend CF.

Students in the honors program are free to pursue the degree option of their choosing at CF, with the scholarship requirement being the successful participation in a limited number of honors-level classes that also serve to fulfill degree requirements. Students may also take classes at any of the CF locations each term, and are not bound to enrolling only in classes offered at the Citrus campus. Besides financial benefits, the Community of Scholars offers members priority registration each term.

Typically, a cumulative high school GPA of 3.75 is needed to qualify for the Community of Scholars, although applications for those with a slightly lower GPA may be considered in some cases. Students must maintain a 3.3 GPA to retain scholarship eligibility.

The Citrus Campus is located at 3800 S. Lecanto Highway in Lecanto. To learn more about the honors program and to apply for scholarships, email honors@cf.edu, or call CF Honors Institute Director Andrew Jenkins at 352-746-6721, Ext. 1263.
