Educate for Change Full Scholarship Program
New College of Florida has established, and will continue to build, programs designed to encourage the enrollment of international students. The Daughters for Life Foundation, working with New College’s local Sarasota-Bradenton-Longboat community, provides additional support to cover the remainder of tuition, housing, and other benefits for up to 10 talented female students with financial need to enroll at New College from Israel, Palestine, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon and Egypt.

The Daughters for Life Foundation handles scholarship applications directly. Please contact Ann Quinn, our international admissions counselor, at or (941) 487-4748 to discuss the New College admission requirements.
