Threat to our students’ EASE funding

Please be aware that significant negative legislation is currently moving through the Florida House of Representatives that will impact students who receive the Effective Access to Student Education (EASE) grant. The EASE grant is a tuition assistance program awarded to students who attend schools like Keiser University and Florida’s other 29 private, independent, non-profit colleges and universities that are part of ICUF (Independent Colleges and Universities of Florida). 


HB 5601 cuts $36.4 million from EASE and would result in nearly 13,000 students at 12 ICUF institutions losing $2,841 in tuition assistance. Students choose ICUF schools because they meet their educational needs and rely on this funding to reduce the cost of attending.


Here’s what you can do to ensure legislators know how important EASE funding is for our students, Keiser University and the ICUF community.
