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 available
through 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.

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.
