The Office of Equal Opportunity Programs and Diversity aims to create an inclusive and diverse campus/community. We support this portion of our mission by offering financial awards specifically designed for employees and minority students. EOPD oversees the administering of 3 financial award programs:
- The Delores Auzenne Fellowship which is awarded to minority graduate students who are pursuing graduate degrees in disciplines where minorities are underrepresented.
- The Grant-in-Aid Program which enables Florida International University employees to take a leave of absence to pursue higher a degree. This grant provides their department with funding for hiring temporary employees to fulfill their duties while they are on leave.
- The Minority Community College Transfer Scholarship is designed for students who are transferring from a community college and would have completed their Associate’s degree between January August of the application year.
