The Isaac Bashevis Singer Scholarship, named after Isaac Bashevis Singer, a Nobel Prize‒winning author who was a lecturer at UM, is one of the premier scholarships available to students at the University of Miami. This scholarship is awarded to exceptional and academically accomplished high school seniors. 

Singer Scholars receive the full cost of tuition for four years of undergraduate study at UM. 

Eligibility Criteria

Early Decision I and Early Action applicants are automatically considered when they apply for early admission to UM by submitting all Freshman Admission Requirements or International Freshman Admission Requirements by November 1. 

Selection Process

Selected candidates for the Singer Scholarship are invited to participate in the Scholarship Weekend at the University of Miami in the spring. During this two-day weekend program, candidates will meet with UM faculty and current scholars and learn more about our interest-driven education. After the weekend, a selection committee identifies finalists whom they recommend to receive the Singer Scholarship based on the students' overall achievement and performance during the weekend.  

Terms and Conditions

A Singer Scholar must complete a full-time undergraduate program of study with no fewer than 12 credit hours during each of the fall and spring semesters for a minimum of 24 credit hours per academic year. A minimum of a 3.0 GPA for the academic year must be maintained at the University of Miami, with the initial calculation at the end of the second semester of attendance. The award is subject to revision pending receipt of any grant, scholarship, or prepaid tuition and/or housing aid not anticipated at the time the award is made.
