FFLA/Vista Future Language Educator Scholarship

Do you know a Florida high school senior (2024-2025 graduate) who is thinking of making a career out of language instruction? Vista is excited to work with FFLA to offer a new scholarship opportunity focused on celebrating the next generation of outstanding language teachers. An award of $1,000 will be presented at the 2024 FFLA annual conference to one outstanding high school senior who demonstrates a strong commitment to pursuing a career in language teaching (any language, including English as a second language, at any level of instruction). This opportunity is only available to students of current FFLA members in good standing.

This opportunity is open to any high school senior (2024-2025 graduate) in the Florida. Applicants should review the rubric and complete all parts of the application. Applications are due by March 1, 2024.
