The Office of Admissions and Financial Aid office at USFSM provides prospective and currently enrolled students with a central location to access scholarship information. The office monitors the Florida Bright Futures Scholarships and a variety of privately-funded scholarships made possible through the generosity of friends and alumni of the University. The Financial Aid office also manages the scholarship renewal process for students who have been awarded scholarships through USFSM. An online search for USF System scholarships can be found on the Financial Aid webpage.
The USF System Office of Undergraduate Admissions and the USFSM Office of Admissions and Financial Aid offers a number of scholarships based on academic merit to students planning to enter USFSM for the first time as a Freshman or an upper-level transfer student. These scholarships are highly competitive. The criteria noted for the various scholarships are used as minimum starting points for consideration and meeting or exceeding the minimum requirements will not guarantee selection. For non-Florida residents, a limited number of out-of-state tuition waivers are available based on academic performance.
New freshmen and transfer students are advised to contact the USFSM Office of Admissions and Financial Aid about the individual college scholarship opportunities. A list of scholarship opportunities can also be accessed by using the USF System Scholarship Search on the Financial Aid website.
