 ATTENTION INCOMING FRESHMAN & TRANSFER STUDENTS!

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

There are a host of scholarships available to assist students with their educational expenses. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic criteria and/or any combination of academics, financial need, campus/community activities, leadership positions and work experience. Scholarships are designed to reward, encourage and assist students in pursuing academic excellence and leadership roles.

Many colleges and departments at FAU offer scholarships to students that are specific to an area of specialization. Below is a list of scholarships by category that may be helpful to you in funding your college education.

Important Note Regarding Concurrent/Consortium/Study Abroad Enrollment

Due to limited funding, all FAU Scholarships will ONLY be calculated and disbursed for FAU credits. Consortium and Concurrent Enrollment will not be considered when calculating required credits for scholarships.

Cautionary Note Regarding Scholarship Scams:

Have you ever had to pay for something that was free? Doesn't make much sense but then again, if you have......maybe it does. Notice that I mentioned "was" free. I'm talking about scholarship scams. Families are falling prey to these fraudulent companies with enticing lines of services such as, "scholarship guaranteed or you'll get your money back" or "we'll do all the work". First of all, a scholarship is defined as money given to a student for education. In other words, a grant or merit award based on their academic achievements. Secondly, the student already did all the work so really what's in it for you? To receive a scholarship, one shouldn't be approached with a business proposition. The FTC (Federal Trade Commission) works for the student and cautions them to be aware of deceptive practices in the marketplace. "You've been selected by a national foundation to receive a scholarship" or "You're a finalist" in a contest you've never entered. Always remember that a scholarship is something you earn and SHOULD NOT have to pay for.

Total aid received may never exceed over the student-athlete's total cost of attendance.

There is only one exception, Pell Grant plus Full Grant in Aid may be greater than total cost of attendance, Bylaw 15.1.1.

Athletics aid may not be awarded for a period greater than one year or for a period of less than one year. This means that it is not permissible to offer a guaranteed four year scholarship. An athletic scholarship may be renewed (or reduced or cancelled) at the end of the year.

During the period of the award, an athletics scholarship may not be increased, decreased or canceled on the basis of athletic ability, performance, contribution to team success, injury, or any other athletics related reason. Institutional athletics aid may be reduced or canceled during the year if the recipient:

  • Renders himself or herself ineligible for intercollegiate competition;
  • Fraudulently misrepresents any information on an application, letter of intent or financial aid agreement;
  • Engages in serious misconduct warranting substantial disciplinary penalty;
  • Voluntarily withdraws from a sport at any time for personal reasons.

A determination on the renewal of athletics aid will be made on or before July 1 for the following year. The financial aid office will send letters notifying each student of his or her renewal determination.

If a student-athlete's athletic aid is being reduced or canceled during the year, or reduced or not renewed for the following year, upon request, the student-athlete will be entitled to a hearing through established procedures outside of the athletic department. The student-athlete will be provided written notification of the opportunity for a hearing. The student must notify the Financial Aid Office in writing requesting appeal hearing. The student's written notification must be received by the deadline specified on the notification letter.
