Scholarships & Tuition

Scholarship Awards

Congratulations on your academic achievements! Once you are designated as Commended or Semifinalist from the National Merit Corporation, you will be considered for a merit-based scholarship upon admission to FAU.

Students who advance to finalist status and designate FAU as their first choice by the deadline will receive an increased scholarship award, which will cover up to the cost-of-attendance, regardless of residency status. If you are a Florida resident, this will include the Florida Bright Futures Scholarship, Benacquisto Scholarship, and the National Merit Florida Atlantic University Scholarship.
