Scholarships and graduate fellowships open UF’s doors to the best student scholars. For some, such as Machen Florida Opportunity Scholars and other students from low-income families, scholarships and fellowships are essential to college success. For others in high demand, the extra financial support is what brings them to UF rather than going to a different school. For all, scholarships and fellowships are bridges for these scholars to go greater.

Scholarships and fellowships enable students to become civic leaders, pursue careers that transform communities and strengthen the workforce. Philanthropists who so generously fund scholarships and fellowships inspire greatness in students and elevate UF’s influence and impact across the globe.
