Florida A&M University (FAMU) has a long history of recognizing outstanding high school graduates because of their academic performance through the University Scholarship Program (USP) is designed to recognize outstanding high school graduates’ academic achievements. FAMU’s scholarship program is based upon merit, and is not a need-based scholarship program. This scholarship program awards partial and full scholarships. There are several partial and full merit-based scholarships under the University Scholarship Program Office:
As Florida A&M University promotes and continues its motto of “Excellence with Caring” into the 21st Century, our goal is to continue to identify these types of students who are eligible to benefit from this scholarship program. It is our mission to promote academic excellence; to improve the quality of life for those individuals on scholarship; to prepare the next generation of World Class citizens committed to addressing global problems and concerns; and to develop citizens committed to their communities and the societies they reside therein. The University Scholarship Program provides a bridge for incoming scholars as they transition from high school to FAMU. We serves as the liaison between the Office of Admissions, Office of Recruitment, Office of Retention, University academic colleges, schools and departments, Student Financial Services, Office of Financial Aid, Career Placement Center, Counseling Center, as well as, the Office of the Division of Student Affairs.
