Incoming freshman and transfer students can apply for several FIU and national merit scholarships. These scholarships are awarded for outstanding academic ability, demonstrated by your GPA*, an essay or other achievements. Read below to learn more about the different types of merit scholarships, what they offer, and their requirements. Students should review the Renewal and Appeal policies for future reference.
*FIU recalculates GPA based on your courses taken. Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, Dual Enrollment, AICE and Honors courses are all taken into consideration in your FIU weighted GPA. FIU weighted GPA is used for Scholarships as well.
Apply for these scholarships and others on the FIU Scholarship Search. Visit Admissions Scholarships to learn how to apply.
Renewal & Appeal
Students should review the renewal and appeal to maintain their merit scholarship aid.
We're happy to guide students on the right path to finding the scholarship that is right for them.
