Scholarship Initiatives

Golden Gift First Generation Scholarship 


The Golden Gift First Generation Scholarship Program is designed to help FIU juniors and seniors at the Biscayne Bay Campus, who are the first generation in their families to pursue a college degree, succeed on their educational journey. 

Each student receives $2,500 scholarship from a donor, which is matched by the state for a total of $5,000. To date the program has raised $2.3 million to help students pursue their dream of a college education. 

Every donor makes a difference.
