UF offers two (2) scholarships of $4000 to transfer in-state community college students selected to the All-Florida Academic First Team. The First Team Members are a group of students selected by Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society (PTK). Each year, PTK recognizes the most outstanding students in the Florida College System based on academic achievement, leadership and service to the community by naming them to the All-Florida Academic Team. Students are nominated by their respective colleges to the All-USA Academic Team competition sponsored by the PTK Honor Society. PTK distinguishes the top 30 students of each class by selecting them to the All-Florida First Team based on rating in competition throughout the state.
