Print Header - IOWA Undergraduate Admissions


The University of Iowa offers more than 2,000 scholarships each year to outstanding undergraduate students based on financial need, academic merit, or both. Students may receive multiple scholarships, and receiving a UI scholarship may not disqualify students from also receiving need-based grants or loans offered through the UI Office of Student Financial Aid, depending up on the amount of demonstrated financial need.

Some students may anticipate participating in intercollegiate athletics at the University of Iowa. This participation may impact their ability to receive institutional or private scholarships and grants. To learn more, view the Student-Athlete Financial Aid FAQ (PDF).
