Scholarships for Current Students

Current Miami students will be considered for the various donor and departmental scholarships available for the following year. We will automatically make award determinations by reviewing a student's cumulative grade point average and the specific eligibility criteria required for each scholarship. Scholarships are awarded within the limits of available funds. No separate scholarship application is required. Current students will receive scholarship award notifications before July 1.

All scholarships are based on academic merit, but some scholarships also require financial need.
