Match the Promise - Immediate Impact

Through the Match the PromiseImmediate Impact program, Miami seeks to connect donors to Miami students through meaningful four-year scholarships that will recruit, empower and graduate a new generation of Miamians.

Match the Promise—Immediate Impact scholarships are expendable four-year scholarships that are matched with an individual student in the Miami University school or college of a donor’s choice. These recruitment scholarships offer an important incentive for top students who are considering Miami and provide each student the security of a scholarship that remains with them to graduation.

The Commitment
The Match the PromiseImmediate Impact program seeks a $5,000 donor commitment each year for four consecutive years—a $20,000 total commitment. The awarded student receives 100 percent of the donor’s support, and if the initial gift is made by March 31, it can be awarded for the next academic year!

Miami’s Match
For a limited time, Miami University is backing Match the PromiseImmediate Impact by offering a 50 percent match to your gift. That means your student will receive an additional $2,500 annual match from Miami that brings the total yearly value of your named scholarship to $7,500—a game-changing offer for any student with the drive and desire to be a Miamian.
