Non-FIU Scholarships

Search For External Scholarships

External scholarships are those provided by non-FIU organizations. These outside organizations often send external scholarship information to the Office of Scholarships. The scholarships are reviewed before posting so that students are offered the most accurate information. If you have any questions about a particular scholarship, please contact the organization listed.

To view all external scholarships, click on "Opportunities" at the top of the page in Academic Works and then select "External" in the drop-down menu. Students are encouraged to review this page frequently in order to stay up-to-date with all new opportunities posted. The listings are searchable by keyword to better help students find scholarships for which they are interested.

As part of FIU’s participation in providing federal and state financial aid, federal law requires that all external scholarships be considered when determining eligibility and awarding financial aid. Therefore, we will adjust the student’s financial aid when necessary to prevent an overage of Cost of Attendance.
