Welcome to the Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University online scholarship portal!

We are currently accepting applications for Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 awards.

To be considered for scholarships, you MUST meet ALL the following criteria:

  • Be a current FAMU student with a full-time enrollment status.
  • You must have a completed the Free Application for Federal Aid (FAFSA) on file with the university.
  • Note to Incoming Students: The vast majority of the endowments requires an established academic record at FAMU. If you decide to search for scholarships specifically for incoming students, save yourself time and don’t apply for scholarships earmarked for current students, you will not be considered.

Get started on your scholarship search now. It’s each as 1-2-3!

1. Sign In on to the system with your FAMU email and password.
2. Complete the General Application and any supplemental applications presented. The system syncs with your data. You are automatically matched with scholarship opportunities for which you meet the criteria, and the system provides additional “recommended” scholarships that may be available to you.
3. After you complete the applications, you’re done! You will receive any award notifications or regret emails via your campus email address. You can also check on the status of your application by logging back into the system at any time.

For detailed information on how to use this system, you can visit our Frequently Asked Questions page, or contact famuscholarships@famu.edu.

Reminder! Your completed General Application will be archived and removed from the system at the end of each academic term. You must complete a new General Application at the beginning of each semester.
