Additional Scholarship Resources

We encourage all of our students to seek additional outside scholarship opportunities to finance their University of Miami education. We recommend looking to community organizations and foundations or accessing the following search engines:

If you are a recipient of an outside scholarship, you are required by the Department of Education to notify us by either emailing a copy of your scholarship award letter(s) to, faxing the letter(s) to 305-284-4082, or mailing the letter(s) to the below address:

Office of Student Financial Assistance and Employment
P.O. Box 248187
Coral Gables, FL 33124-5240

Please send all outside scholarship checks to:

University of Miami
P.O. Box 025551
Location 20
Miami, FL 33102-5551

In the event that your financial aid award, including outside resources, exceeds the total cost of attendance, University funds may be adjusted to ensure that the total aid does not exceed the cost of attendance. Always check with the Office of Student Financial Assistance and Employment when receiving awards from outside agencies to find out the full impact of such awards on your University financial aid award package. Never assume that your original financial aid award will remain the same if such awards are added. We reserve the right to modify any financial aid award at any time due to changes in eligibility. Visit our Terms & Conditions page for additional information.

Scholarships may be subject to taxation, depending on individual factors. You can reference IRS Publication 970 for general guidance, but please consult with a tax adviser if you are unclear about tax implications of any scholarship.  The University of Miami does not provide tax advice and is not responsible for any taxes that result from any awards.
