Florida State University Panama City has raised the family income eligibility requirement by $10,000 for the FSU PC Promise Scholarship, increasing the number of students who may meet the criteria for the FSU PC Promise Scholarship.
“The FSU PC Promise Scholarship is made possible by our generous donors, including The Chapman Family Foundation, The St. Joe Community Foundation, and Pam and Larry Perry,” said Randy Hanna, dean of FSU PC. “We are committed to helping ensure financial need doesn’t deter students from achieving their goals in higher education.”
Isabella Barbour, a first-generation college student growing up in a one-income family of five in Bay County, is a spring 2021 recipient of the FSU PC Promise Scholarship.
An adopted family of seven will have a guaranteed college education thanks to combined scholarships from FSU Panama City, Gulf Coast State College and Chipola College.

Because of generous donors, about 175 scholarship recipients are able to afford college each year at FSU Panama City. Endowed scholarships are privately funded and recognize superior scholarship, leadership and exemplary character among student recipients who have high financial need.
