Scholarships are funds awarded on the basis of various criteria, usually including merit. They do not need to be repaid. Scholarship opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students and for students at the Miami and San Juan campuses are listed below.
Scholarships for Undergraduate Students
The Florida Department of Education awards college scholarships to Florida high school students based on academic transcripts and SAT/ACT scores. Applications are submitted during the last year of high school, and a specified GPA must be maintained in order to receive the award. Once enrolled at a college or university, recipients receive a fixed cost per credit hour based on award level, institution type, and credit type, with a bonus given for exceptional academic work.
