To start a scholarship application on AcademicWorks:

  1. Login at with your MyAccounts username and password. (You must have already activated your FIU e-mail account and have a Panther ID number)

  3. To search for the Honors College scholarships (listed below), type “Honors College” in the search tab.
  4. For First Generation scholarships, you must qualify as a “First Generation” student to be eligible. To be considered First Gen, you must have put on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) that neither of your parents completed a bachelor’s degree in any country. If that is the case but you answered the FAFSA incorrectly, you must go to and file an amendment to your FAFSA to be eligible for First Generation scholarships.
  5. To be eligible for institutional aid, a student must either be a citizen of the United States, a U.S. lawful permanent resident or an international student on an aid eligible visa. Please note: DACA/TPS/Undocumented students without a legal status are not eligible for Federal, State or Institutional Funding.

A limited number of exclusive, competitive Honors scholarships are available for current and incoming Honors College students. FIU’s online scholarship application tool, AcademicWorks,  will allow you to search and apply for these and other scholarships at FIU. All award amounts shown are the total for the fall-spring school year.
