Education Desk: Will Changes to Bright Futures Scholarship Affect Underrepresented Groups of Students?
Starting with the class of 2021 students will need to get higher SAT scores to qualify for a Bright Futures Scholarship.
The minimum test score for a full scholarship will increase from 1290 to 1330.
Republican state senator Kelli Stargel, who introduced the bill, says it was getting too easy to get the scholarships.
The Education Desk spoke with Boys and Girls Club College Coordinator Suzanne Dukes and alumna of the program Irene Dominque about the impact the changes could have on under-represented students.
