Access to excellence is our greatest responsibility – and at FIU, every scholarship dollar is transformational. More than 2/3 of FIU students receive financial aid, and our students rely on scholarship support not only to begin their studies but also to complete them.

Your investment in student success initiatives through the Next Horizon campaign will strengthen our efforts. Together, we will develop and implement solutions and strategies to help our students get to where they want to be.
