Funding and Scholarships
The Raymond and Simone Miklos Endowed Scholarship was established in 2002 by Raymond Miklos to honor his beloved wife, Simone. Raised in France, Simone Miklos attended the University of South Florida where she enjoyed sharing French culture, language, and literature with her classmates and friends. Simone cherished her time at USF and to honor her memory, Ray established the Miklos Scholarship. The family’s goal is to support and encourage other young students from France to emulate Simone’s passion for learning at USF.
If you meet the following qualifications, we urge you to apply for this funding:
- French heritage: Proof of French citizenship and birthplace in France
- Full time, degree seeking, undergraduate at USF who has completed at least two semesters (30 hours at USF)
- Current GPA of 3.0 or above
The Miklos Scholarship is given to 2-3 top scholars at USF each year who meet the criteria and are selected by a committee on the basis of merit, application and essay. Selected students receive an award of $2,000 to $3,000 per semester, which is renewable for up to 6 semesters if qualifications continue to be met. This scholarship does not include the summer semester.
