FAU's Office of Undergraduate Admissions offers numerous scholarships for incoming freshman and transfer students. We suggest applying early as our scholarships are competitive and most are awarded early in the admission cycle. Additional scholarships are available through the FAU Alumni Association and through academic colleges. 

  • A scholarship applicant must be admitted as a degree seeking student before being considered for an Office of Undergraduate Admissions scholarship award.
  • A high school diploma or its equivalent is required in order to be considered for merit scholarships. 
  • All awards are paid out in the fall and spring terms only; excludes summer semesters.
  • An eligible student may receive only one admissions scholarship unless otherwise stated in the scholarship award letter. Generally, scholarships are not stackable.
  • The deadline to apply for a Freshman Scholarship is January 15th (unless otherwise noted).
  • The deadline to apply for a for Transfer Scholarship is March 1st (unless otherwise noted).

Please read scholarship descriptions and eligibility requirements thoroughly before applying. Applicants must have a completed application and will only be considered for awards they are deemed eligible.
