I went to college at The University of Florida, one of the most prestigious state schools in the country. While Florida is an excellent school, that excellence comes at a price, and not a cheap one.

Luckily, Florida takes care of its own with the Bright Future Scholarship, a program sponsored by the Florida Lottery that pays for Florida residents to go to college for free as long as their GPA and test scores are up to par.

While Arizona doesn't have an all encompassing scholarship like that, they're still making sure students can further their education, and have fun doing it.
