MRU Blue Gold Gala


The MRU Blue and Gold Fundraising Gala was a memorable night under the stars on campus where we celebrated our 26th Year Anniversary and relaunch of our Alumni Association. Through various efforts, over $20,000 were collected through fundraising to benefit the A.R.I.S.E. Scholarship. This scholarship was created to provide tuition cost assistance for students at a crossroads in their lives undergoing economic hardship. This community effort would not have been possible without the generous donations of our top supporter Banesco, USA and the contributions from so many others. With this collective support we will ARISE to the situation to help those who need it most; those who have overcome life’s challenges against all odds!

ARISE Scholarship

In January 2022, Miami Regional University students, faculty, staff, and the Alumni Association instituted a scholarship fundraiser for students experiencing financial difficulty and hardship, finding themselves at a crossroads in their lives.

ARISE is a community effort to help those who need it most and is specially created for students who have overcome life’s challenges against all odds. This scholarship coverage varies depending on the number of funds raised by the community and focuses on providing tuition cost assistance. To be considered for this scholarship, the candidate must fulfill the following requirements: 

  1. Meet all program admission requirements 
  2. Apply for the scholarship while enrolling in a degree program 
  3. Students must submit an essay narrating the challenges they have overcome in their lives and the life-changing point in which they find themselves now
  4. Once enrolled, students must be members of the MRU Community by participating in university organizations and/or Student Government Association
  5. Once enrolled, a minimum of a 3.0 GPA must be maintained throughout the entire program. Loss of 3.0 GPA per term voids scholarship. 

The ARISE Scholarship Committee will read essays against the ARISE essay question and rubric, select the student who will receive the scholarship in Fall 2022, and announce it. The scholarship is open to both undergraduate and graduate program students*. Full details and rubric available in the below document.

* Scholarship funds awarded will be distributed semester by semester. If the scholarship payment creates an overpayment, excess funds will be refunded to the community fund.
