University Merit Scholarships

Miami University is pleased to offer merit scholarships to academically accomplished first-year, full-time undergraduate students who enroll on the Oxford campus for Fall 2015. The application for admission is used to determine merit scholarship eligibility—no additional form is required. Miami University merit scholarships are highly competitive and, thus, not guaranteed. The academic qualifications determining scholarship awards are dependent on the strength of the applicant pool. Priority consideration will be given to students applying for admission by December 1, 2014
