Office of Scholarships & Fellowships

About Us


The Office of Scholarships (OS) is part of Undergraduate Education at FIU and is dedicated to helping students find, apply for, and attain national and university-based opportunities.

We are committed to helping undergraduate and graduate students develop the skills, personal commitment and drive needed to pursue and receive scholarships that align with their educational and professional goals.

Vision

We are committed to creating a transformative experience for students where they reflect purposefully on and expand their perspectives of themselves and their world, furthering the University’s commitment to collaborative engagement with our local and global communities. By going through our process, FIU students improve their critical thinking, persuasive writing, and prepare to assume their roles as leaders, both locally and globally. Through national and regional scholarships and fellowships, FIU students become active ambassadors of our community to the outside world.

Goals
  • To provide information and resources to students in order to increase awareness of the scholarships available and the process involved in attaining them;

  • To mentor students through workshops, presentations, advising, and individual guidance and feedback which result in competitive applications for national and regional awards;

  • To provide advising that helps students better understand their strengths and academic goals;To provide academic value to students by improving their skills in analytical thinking and writing a research proposal or study plan, interviewing, and preparing for their post-graduate lives;
  • To collaborate with faculty and staff across the University to identify and support potential student scholars and fellows;
  • To introduce a diverse student population to nationally competitive scholarships;
  • To gain national recognition for FIU by enhancing its reputation for success in attaining major national scholarships and awards.
Values

Students: Students and their success are the primary focus of the OS.

Learning: We value the process of applying to scholarships as much, if not more, than the actual “prize” itself. The learning process helps students define and clarify their goals, identify and utilize resources, and develop life-long tools for success.

Collaboration: We strive to connect with faculty, staff and students across the University. All play an important role in identifying, selecting, mentoring and supporting strong candidates for local and national scholarships and fellowships.
