Overview

Founded in 1958 as Brevard Engineering College, the university has been known by its present name since 1966. Despite its small size and young history, Florida Tech is consistently ranked among the best national doctoral-granting universities in the US. The university has more than 60,000 alumni, including a National Teacher of the Year recipient, director of a NASA center, five astronauts who have flown on the Space Shuttle, several astronaut candidates, the first female four-star general, two other four-star generals and nearly two dozen other generals, a 1992 Olympic medalist, a major league pitcher, and thousands that serve as scientists, engineers, pilots, and managers in many high-technology enterprises. It's ranked as Tier One Best National University by U.S. News & World Report and one of the top 200 universities in the world by Times Higher Education in its 2013 edition. Additionally, it has been listed as a Barron's Guide "Best Buy" in college education, ranked a "Best Southeastern College" by The Princeton Review, and named among the top private universities in Florida by Washington Monthly College Rankings. Most recently, Florida Tech was named by Bloomberg Businessweek as the top university in Florida for return on investment.

Scholarships

Merit-based scholarships
Academic scholarships are available through the Office of Admission. Scholarships are awarded to students with very strong secondary school grades. Scholarships may be available to qualified students regardless of country of citizenship. Scholarships range from $5,000 to $12,000 per year and are awarded automatically at the time of admission. No additional scholarship application is needed. These scholarships are only awarded to students with no prior community college or university course work.
Those students having attended, or who are currently attending, a community college or university may be eligible for a Transfer Scholarship of $8,000 per year ($4,000 per semester) until graduation. If the student attends a community college in the United States and has earned a membership to the community college honor society Phi Theta Kappa, they can combine an additional award with their transfer scholarship for a total of $12,500 per year.

Need-based aid
Florida Tech offers limited financial aid (up to $10,000) to international students on the basis of need. This award may be combined with a Merit scholarship. To apply for need based aid, file the application for admission and Request for Financial Support form before January 15 for priority consideration. A limited number of part-time jobs may be available on campus, but they are very competitive. Therefore, it is our recommendation that you should apply to Florida Tech with the understanding that you will be personally responsible for obtaining the funds necessary to attend the university.

Athletic Scholarships
Florida Tech competes at the NCAA Division II level with scholarships available in the following sports: Baseball, basketball, rowing, cross country, golf, soccer and tennis, basketball, rowing, cross country, golf, softball, tennis, soccer and volleyball. Students interested in pursuing athletic scholarships must have significant athletic accomplishments in their country to be competitive. For further information, contact the specific coach for your sport. Coach contact information can be found on the Florida Tech Athletics website.

International Student Finances
The university strictly conforms to U.S. immigration laws concerning international students. Upon acceptance, you must provide certified evidence that you have adequate funds to meet all your expenses during the first year of college. In addition, U.S. Immigration requires this information to be on your I-20 form (the form we send you to give to the U.S. Consulate in your country to secure a student visa). It is important for you to know that tuition and fees must be paid prior to the beginning of each semester. Also, even though you are only required to show proof of financial support for the first year, you are expected to have planned funding for the duration of your course of study.
