Effective Access to Student Education/ Florida Resident Access Grant (EASE/FRAG)

The EASE, formerly known as FRAG, is a grant provides tuition assistance for eligible Florida undergraduate students attending an eligible private, non-profit Florida college or university. This grant has helped a large percentage of students at Stetson. The state has cut funds for Florida students. A cut has been installed from the last state budget to the FRAG/ EASE.
