Opportunity Scholars

Bright, talented and ambitious with proven strength of character, Machen Florida Opportunity Scholars have everything it takes to become tomorrow’s leaders. It’s a select group. Opportunity Scholars are academically exceptional. All are Florida residents. None have parents with a college degree. And none are from families that earn more than $40,000 a year. Opportunity Scholars are trailblazers. Their education not only changes the direction of their own lives, it sets a new course for their families, improves their communities and strengthens Florida’s workforce.
