Freshman Scholarships

College can be expensive – which is why we offer scholarships to high-achieving students. Scholarships are based on academic merit and do not need to be repaid. Scholarships are open to qualified incoming U.S. citizens, permanent residents, and international Transfer students with F-1 visa eligibility only. Priority consideration will be given to students who have submitted a complete FMU Undergraduate Admissions application and have submitted their FAFSA application by December 1st of each calendar year.

Scholarships are competitive and awarded on a “funds availability” basis. Scholarship awards do not include orientation, housing deposit, meal plan, and other student related fees. Scholarship offers will be finalized once final transcripts have been received and final gpa has been verified.
