Welcome to the Iowa Scholarship Portal for Undergraduate Students!


PLEASE NOTE: Scholarship applications are now closed. The next scholarship cycle will begin in September 2016. Please refrain from filling out a General Application at this time as it will not be considered.

The University of Iowa has hundreds of scholarship opportunities available. Many of the scholarships listed in this section only require you to complete our general scholarship application. However, some scholarships require additional information from you to determine your eligibility (those opportunities have a visible “Apply” button listed). Please keep in mind this section lists all institutional scholarships available regardless if you are eligible or not.

After you complete the general scholarship application, you may be presented with “Recommended” opportunities for which you might be eligible. The recommended opportunities can be a combination of general scholarships (open to all students) and departmental scholarships (restricted to students within a specific major or field of study). Scholarships may be recommended to you at different times throughout the year as applications become available, so we suggest visiting the Iowa Scholarship Portal often.

Please take a moment to review the University of Iowa Scholarship and Grant Policies.

If you have any questions concerning the scholarship application process, please email adm-scholarship@uiowa.edu.

Admitted students: Sign in using your Hawk ID and password to begin the scholarship application process.
