Johnson Scholarship Application

The DRC Johnson Scholarship, funded by the Johnson Scholarship Foundation, is a competitively awarded program, which is available to undergraduate students with disabilities enrolled in a State University System of Florida (SUS) institution.

All applicants will be notified of their status as Johnson Scholarship recipients, alternate award candidates, or as students who were not selected. Notification letters will be mailed in July to the permanent address, which is specified on the application form. After verification of enrollment, the university will disburse the award on a prorated basis each academic term to eligible Johnson Scholarship recipients. The dollar amount of the 2021-2022 awards is contingent upon the level of funding from the Johnson Scholarship Foundation and the Florida Legislature.
