The Miss FIU Scholarship Pageant was established at Florida International University to provide the women of the university the opportunity to grow as well rounded individuals. Through participation in this program, they experience important societal issues, develop professional and personal skills, and showcase their talents.
The pageant serves as an official preliminary for the Miss Florida Scholarship Pageant, where areas of competition include formal interview, talent, evening-wear, lifestyle and fitness in swimsuit, and the onstage question interview. The 2017 Miss FIU Scholarship Pageant will be held in January 2017 at the Biscayne Bay Campus Mary Anne Wolfe Theater (3000 NE 151 St, North Miami, FL 33181) at 5pm. Ticket information will be available December 2016.

Throughout the years, it has been named one of the nation's leading attainment programs and the world's largest scholarship provider for young woman. Last year, the Miss America Organization and its state and local organizations made available more than $45 million in cash and scholarship assistance.
