Scholarships for Undergraduate Students

Miami offers merit scholarships to qualified high school students who enroll full time on Miami's Oxford campus beginning in the fall semester. Students will be considered based on scholarship availability at the time they apply. Dec. 1 is the priority application deadline to be considered for Miami's merit scholarships. Miami does not require the submission of ACT or SAT test scores for first-year students applying for 2025 enrollment.

Merit Scholarships for Fall 2025
Weighted High School GPA 1 Ohio Resident (annual amount) 2 Non-Resident (annual amount) 2
4.30+ Starting at $4,000 Starting at $15,000

3.75-3.94 Starting at $2,000 Starting at $6,000
3.50-3.74 Starting at $1,000 Starting at $4,000
  1. Miami uses the weighted GPA on a student’s transcript. If your school does not calculate a weighted GPA, Miami will recalculate your GPA for you, adding weight based on coursework difficulty. If you have taken rigorous classes, your recalculated GPA likely will be higher than your high school GPA. See additional information for international students below.
  2. Scholarships are renewable for up to four years, provided students meet renewability requirements.

International Students: For the merit scholarships described above, Miami calculates an equivalent U.S. GPA on a 4.0 scale for all international applicants educated outside the U.S. educational system. For international students at U.S. high schools (or those that follow a U.S. high school curriculum and grading system), Miami will recalculate your GPA as we do with other students at U.S. schools. See more information about scholarships for international students.

Additional Scholarships

Ohio Governor's Scholarship

Ohio residents who apply for admission by Dec. 1 are automatically considered for Miami’s Ohio Governor’s Scholarship. This award covers full tuition and general fees for a top student from each of Ohio’s 88 counties. Course fees are not covered by this scholarship.

Honors College

When applying for admission, students may indicate their interest in the Honors College, which features the Presidential Fellows Program (PFP), a highly competitive scholarship for fifteen top students in the Honors College per year that covers tuition, fees, housing, and food and includes a $5,000 academic enrichment stipend, and the Prodesse Scholarship, a $2,000 award for top students admitted to the Honors College who aren't also Presidential Fellows. 

For consideration for PFP, or priority consideration for the Honors College, apply by Dec. 1. Applications received after Dec. 1 will be considered for the Honors College if space remains available.
