If you are an admitted/currently enrolled undergraduate student or University of Iowa scholarship administrator, please sign in using your HawkID and password. For anyone else (e.g. students who have applied but have not been admitted yet, prospective students, parents, high school counselors), you can visit our general scholarship listing. Graduate scholarships/assistantships are not included in the portal. PARENTS, please do not sign into the portal using your Guest Access HawkID and password. This will result in an invalid scholarship application.

  • When you apply for admission to the University of Iowa, an email is sent to your personal email with instructions on creating your HawkID & password and university email account. If you have not already done this, go back to that email to complete your set-up.
  • If you have forgotten your HawkID or password, go to HawkID Tools to look it up or reset it.
  • If you have questions about using the Iowa Scholarship Portal, please contact us at adm-scholarship@uiowa.edu
