Additional $700,000 Goes to Scholarships

10/30/1997

OXFORD, Ohio -- Miami University is adding $700,000 to its

scholarship pool to provide recognition and financial assistance to top-ranked

students.

Four new scholarship programs, including one for high school

valedictorians, are being created.

"Miami is nationally recognized as a best buy, but we want to guarantee

that the most talented students continue to enroll here," said Miami President

James C. Garland.

The university currently provides about $4.8 million in merit and

need-based scholarships.

The four new award programs include:

  • Miami Scholars Award. This is a four-year, renewable award for

    exceptional students with demonstrated financial need. Awards will be from

    $2,000 to $3,000. To be considered, students must rank in the top 15 percent

    of their class, have a 27 on the ACT or a 1200 or above on the SAT.

  • Valedictorian Scholarship. This is a four-year, renewable award of

    $1,000 for those who rank first in their high school graduating class. Awards

    will be granted to the first 300 valedictorians who apply for admission.

  • National Merit Scholarship--Additional Match. Miami will award a

    four-year, renewable award of $3,000 to National Merit finalists in addition to

    the traditional university match of $750 to $2,000. Total awards to National

    Merit finalists will range from $3,750 to $5,000 depending upon need.

  • Honors Award. A total of 300 one-time $500 recognition awards will

    be given to students who enroll at Miami and are invited to participate in the

    university's honors program.
