Francis Marion University and the Francis Marion University Foundation express their sincere appreciation to all of the individuals, businesses, and organizations that have contributed funds for scholarships. Through this generosity, the best and brightest students may be recruited and retained, and students with financial need may receive assistance.
Institutional Scholarships are made available in varying amounts to students through the generosity and outstanding community commitment of businesses, individuals, and organizations including the Francis Marion University Foundation, the FMU Fund, and the Swamp Fox Club. Through these gifts, students receive needed scholarships and financial assistance.
Unless otherwise noted, full-time enrollment is required to receive a scholarship. Written applications are due by March 1 annually for most scholarships for continuing students. Freshman scholarship deadlines vary from year to year. The Admissions Office awards freshman scholarships to students who have outstanding academic records, standardized test scores, and who demonstrate evidence of exemplary leadership in high school.
Scholarship amounts vary.
Students interested in Institutional Scholarships are also encouraged to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). For scholarship purposes, the FAFSA is used as a financial statement and not to determine need per the Federal student assistance definition.
