Gardiner Scholarship/Family Empowerment Scholarship Program is expanding services.
What can a Gardner/Family Empowerment Scholarship Program do for my child?

On May 11, 2021, Governor DeSantis signed legislation that expands access to education choice scholarships. These changes will go into effect on July 1, 2021. The new legislation allows more families than ever to be eligible for a scholarship

With a Gardiner Scholarship, your child has more learning options. The Gardner/Family Empowerment Scholarship Program is different than other state scholarships in that it allows parents to personalize the education of their children with unique abilities by directing money toward a combination of programs and approved providers. These include schools, therapists, specialists, curriculum, technology – even a college savings account. Learn more about the Gardner/Family Empowerment Scholarship Program HERE.
