Scholarship Program

Florida Baptist College is committed to keeping the cost of tuition reasonable so that a lack of finances will not prevent a student from following the will of God for his life.  Students are expected to do their part by working to pay their college expenses and by being good stewards of their finances. In order to help those students who may not be able to afford this cost despite their best work efforts and stewardship, FBC offers the following scholarships:

LOcal Church Offering Scholarships (LOCO)
This scholarship is available to all students whose home church supports Florida Baptist College for $200 per month. The amount of this scholarship will cover current tuition fees.  All students whose home church supports Florida Baptist College for $100 per month will have their tuition fees reduced to half!  LOCO support from churches is considered a full-year (twelve month) pledge.  Students on the LOCO scholarship will be charged the regular tuition rate if their churches do not support the college for a full year during each year of their scholarship.  If you are interested in the LOCO Scholarship, fill out the form on the Contact Us page completely.  A member of the Florida Baptist College administration will contact you.
