Portrait of a Hammond Scholar

Hammond Scholars are a diverse group of students from across the country whose varied experiences, achievements, and interests help cultivate the vibrant academic community that is the University of Miami. Many hail from underrepresented backgrounds, and some are the first in their family to graduate from a college or university. Engagement and involvement are at the heart of the Hammond Scholar experience, helping to maximize their opportunities upon graduation. These students personify UM’s commitment to excellence and diversity in the development of “future leaders of our nation and the world.”

Selection Process

Selected candidates for the Hammond 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 Hammond Scholarship based on the students' overall achievement and performance during the weekend.  

Terms & Conditions

A Hammond 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.
