Unlike loans, students do not have to pay back the amount they receive in grants.

Teachers in Florida need to constantly stay on top of new materials. Most teachers need to study part-time while teaching full-time at their regular day jobs in schools. The cost to study part-time can be expensive in Florida. For example, for elementary school teachers, with an average salary of $46,921.00, it can be hard for them to come up with the tuition fees to study part-time. Vice versa with Florida's secondary school teachers, who have an average salary of $46,921.00.
