University Scholarships

Most Miami scholarships are administered by the Office of Financial Aid, 121 Nellie Craig Walker Hall, 529-0001, and require documented financial need.

Prospective students should also be aware of Miami’s Access Initiative, which is designed to help make a Miami degree accessible to all academically qualified students. Any Ohio resident entering Miami’s Oxford campus as a first-time, full-time freshman in the fall will be considered for the scholarship program. Students must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by February 15, be eligible for federal aid, and have a total family income equal to or less than $35,000.

Another source of financial assistance is the Federal Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant which awards up to $4,000 to students who serve as full-time teachers in a high-need field in a public or private elementary or secondary school that serves low-income students.
