Through its Forever and a Day Athletic Scholarship Society, Miami University seeks to enlist alumni and friends in support of scholarships for Miami student-athletes. Not only will these donors have a transformational impact on the young men and women they empower, but they will also receive special benefits and a deeper level of engagement with Miami Athletics.

The Program

The Forever and a Day Athletic  Scholarship Society seeks four-year donor commitments to fund scholarships for specific Miami student-athletes. Forever and a Day scholarships are awarded to incoming student-athletes and are intended to remain with the student-athletes throughout their collegiate careers. The scholarship may be designated to a specific sport by the gifting donor.

University Match

Miami University is demonstrating the priority it places on the success of its athletic programs and student-athletes by offering a 50 percent match on all newly created Forever and a Day scholarships.

How it Works
Miami will automatically apply the match to each annual award made to a student-athlete through the Forever and Day program. For example, an in-state student-athlete will receive a $15,000 scholarship through their Forever and a Day scholarship plus an additional $7,500 from Miami’s match, raising the total scholarship value to $22,500. An out-of-state student receives a $12,500 Miami match, increasing his or her scholarship to $37,500.
