Departmental Scholarships

While the University Financial Aid Office (accessed here) is the first place to stop to see what kinds of options are open to you, there are also some financial aid options available through the Department.

One example is the Villagers Scholarships for the study of historical preservation in Genoa.  These have been given out over the past few years to students on our semester-long study abroad program in Genoa.  The award amounts vary, but they are generally in the range of about $3,000.  Although the Villagers decide on the awards, they have given FIU students up to four in a given year.

First Time in College Awards (FTIC). During 2012­–13, the Department has been provided by the Office of the Dean with $43,500 to distribute to first-time in college freshmen studying architecture. The awardees are going to be selected by merit based upon a combination of their work in design studio and their overall GPAs.

Each, the Department offers 21 Graduate Assistantships.  These are one- or two-semester opportunities that provide students who are officially graduate students (having transitioned from undergraduate or having entered the program with graduate standing) with up to 15 credits of tuition paid and a $3,750 stipend per semester.  Students with GA-ships work in the labs and assist faculty members with courses and their research.  Each Spring semester, all eligible graduate students who are interested in taking advantage of this opportunity are invited to provide preferences for the graduate assistantships of their choice.  Faculty members then provide input on who they would prefer to have in these positions, and the Department Chair makes the final decision with the Dean of the College of Architecture + the Arts.
