TALLAHASSEE, FL – May 5, 2011 – The application deadline for the Florida Association of Postsecondary Schools and Colleges (FAPSC) “Hottest Jobs” Scholarship program for high school seniors and G.E.D. recipients is May 15, 2011.
FAPSC, in partnership with member schools and colleges throughout the state, offers scholarships totaling more than $1 million to help students seeking to further their education at many of Florida's leading private career schools and colleges.
Students still have time to take advantage of the scholarships that range from $1,000, $5,000 to full tuition and can be used for programs ranging from short-term diplomas to four-year college degrees at participating career colleges in Florida.
“With state budget cuts, we’re proud to be part of the solution for those who are looking for careers in Florida,” says Wanda Minick, deputy director of FAPSC.
“We offer more than 400 scholarships each year to help students who want an education with hands-on training that will set them apart as graduates. They will enter the workforce ready for careers in high demand jobs like surgical technologists and sonographers in the healthcare field, or as network administrators, programmers and technicians in the information technology field,” Minick says.

The Florida Association of Postsecondary Schools and Colleges works on behalf of Florida’s 360 degree granting and 550 non-degree granting career schools and colleges. Licensed by the state, these schools educate and prepare over 379,000 students each year for employment in more than 200 occupational fields. For more information, visit www.FAPSC.org.
