Academic Scholarships for Freshmen
Entering Academic Year Fall 2014
University of Miami international freshman President's Scholarships range from $5,000 to $30,000 annually. Students are automatically considered for the President’s Scholarships when they apply for admission to the University.
Eligibility and Award Decisions
Academic scholarships are limited in number and awarding is highly competitive. The University of Miami takes into account students' high school grades, difficulty of course curriculum, extracurricular activities, essay, and guidance counselor recommendation(s), as well as the overall quality of the pool of applicants applying to the university each year when making scholarship award decisions. International applicants should NOT submit SAT scores to be considered for a University of Miami President’s scholarship. A student may receive only one academic scholarship from the Office of International Admission.
The Scholarship Committee will make the final determination on all scholarship awards.
To be considered for academic scholarships, international candidates must submit a complete application for admission with all academic credentials, including a bank letter by the deadline listed below. The bank letter must indicate the applicant will be able to cover the difference between the scholarship award and the total cost of attendance (approximately US $59,500). Please note that we do not have academic scholarships to award for spring semester. You can apply to UM online. Frost School of Music students will be considered for University of Miami scholarships based on music talent and academic performance.
To be considered for an academic scholarship, all required documents must be at the University of Miami by:
