Randolph Bracy Ocoee Scholarship Program

The Randolph Bracy Ocoee Scholarship Program was created by the 2021 Florida Legislature to provide financial assistance for a maximum of 50 eligible students who are either

  • (1) a direct descendant of victims of the Ocoee Election Day Riots of November 1920, or
  • (2) current African-American residents of Ocoee, Florida.

Applicants must provide proof of ancestry or proof of residency to the Office of Student Financial Assistance (OSFA) for initial eligibility consideration. Eligible students must attend a state university, public state college, or public postsecondary technical center in Florida and will receive an amount up to $6,100 annually not to exceed the amount of the student’s tuition and registration fees. Funds for the Ocoee Scholarship Program are contingent each year upon the appropriations made available by the Florida Legislature.
