  • Outside Scholarship Opportunities

    We encourage all of our students to seek additional outside scholarship opportunities to finance their University of Miami education. We recommend looking to community organizations and foundations or accessing the following search engines:


  • Recipients of Outside Scholarships

    If you are a recipient of an outside scholarship, you are required by the U. S. Department of Education to notify the Office of Student Financial Assistance and Employment (OSFAE). Please submit all information from the scholarship agency to the OSFAE as soon as the student is made aware of the award. Please use the Outside Scholarship Documentation Submission Form to report this information. 

    Please send all outside scholarship checks to:

    University of Miami
    P.O. Box 025551, Location 20
    Miami, FL 33102-5551

    In the event that your financial aid award, including outside scholarships, exceeds the total cost of attendance, University funds may be adjusted to ensure that the total aid does not exceed the cost of attendance.  You may check with the Office of Student Financial Assistance and Employment when receiving awards from outside agencies to find out the full impact of the outside scholarships on your University financial aid award package. Never assume that your original financial award will remain the same if such awards are added. We reserve the right to modify any financial aid award at any time due to changes in eligibility or new information received by the OSFAE. Visit our Terms & Conditions page for additional information.
