Too many students cannot afford to live on campus, despite the many advantages it affords. Too many have to stop their education mid-stream to take jobs, help their families, or earn the cost of attendance. The Scholarship Fund will let us recruit top students to FIU, support them in getting the best possible education, and intervene when circumstances threaten their educational dreams.
Naming opportunities are available for donor acknowlegment.

“Thank you for the first-rate education, scholarships, and study abroad opportunities you have provided. I can honestly say that I would not be the person I am today if it weren’t for the Honors College at FIU.”
–Marika de los Reyes, '10
“I am extremely grateful to the Honors College for not only the funds that allowed me to go to D.C. for the NVEEE Convention, but for the four years the College has allowed me to think and dream outside the box.”
