FAU is proud to offer numerous merit- and need-based scholarships to our incoming students. Our scholarships range from $1,000 to $14,000 per year. Our merit scholarships are highly competitive and are awarded on a rolling basis each cycle. The degree of competitiveness is determined by the credentials of each year’s entering class. It is highly recommended that you apply for admission early as scholarships given through the Office of Admissions are awarded to admitted students only. Each student’s file is reviewed upon admission to FAU for eligibility for one of our merit-based scholarships and no application is required to be considered for these awards. Additional scholarships that do require a supplemental scholarship application are available through the Office of Admissions. For a list of these scholarships and a link to our online scholarship and click application, visit on “Scholarships.”
