International Student Scholarships

All new first-year undergraduate international students who submit completed applications and meet the requirements for full admission for fall semester are automatically considered for the International Education Scholarship and University Merit Scholarship. Separate applications are required for the Presidential Fellows Program (PFP) and the #YouAreWelcomeHere Scholarship. Miami University scholarships are highly competitive. The academic qualifications determining scholarship awards are dependent on the strength of the applicant pool. Fifty-eight percent of first-year international applicants accepted for Fall 2020 were offered an academic scholarship.

International transfer students will also be considered for the transfer scholarship opportunities at the time of admission.

Deadlines vary by scholarship program.
