Georgia/Florida Scholarships (out of state)?

I live in Georgia and about to go to a technical college under the Georgia Hope Grant. I want to move to Florida after I graduate and study meteorology. I am wondering is there any scholarship I can try to earn and use it at a university or college down there. Or would I have to earn one when I live there. Excellent grades are no problem for me. i am beginning to research this and plan this out now so I want real answers. Thank you!

    Congratulations on being eligible for the Georgia Hope Grant.

    Just a point of information for you, in case you don't realize it - at any state-funded univ. in Florida (where you wish to pursue a degree in meteorology), you will be considered a non-resident/out-of-state resident for tuition purposes. I suggest you find out the requirements to be eligible to be considered a Florida resident for tuition purposes so you can establish yourself as a Florida resident before you apply to any Fla. state-funded univ. This web page (2 pages) will give you some information. Plus, you should be able to find the requirements for residency for tuition on any Fla. state-funded univ. web site.

    As for scholarships, the Fla. school you may wish to attend may have scholarship/grant funds (funds that do not need to be repaid) for just their own students. Staff members of the university may need the info from your completed FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid - ) or may need a completed CSS Profile (from the College Board – ) to determine if you will be awarded any scholarships/grants. Look for info about them on the schools' Financial Aid web pages.

    With the results of the scholarship search databases you will have to look at each scholarship option in the results & the info on the scholarship granting organization web pages to determine if you qualify to apply.

You could evidently see mom used to be making an attempt rough to toughen her children's schooling. She used to be a single working mother and afraid for her kids even to walk to that school as she was at work and might not be there to look them safely to and from.Lets face it the Congress wishes votes and have a plan for the future.
