We have reached the deadline for students to apply for admission in order to be considered for fall 2020 scholarships. Information on available scholarships for students enrolling fall 2021 will be released later this summer.

New scholarship programs may be created each year and award amounts for existing scholarship programs are subject to change. Currently enrolled students cannot become eligible for a new scholarship or a new award amount that did not exist when they first enrolled at the University of Iowa.

Select merit-based scholarships awarded by the Office of Admissions do not stack. This is noted in the descriptions below. If a student meets the minimum requirements for multiple awards, they will automatically be awarded the scholarship with the highest dollar value. These scholarships do not apply to incoming transfer students. Please see the Scholarship and Grant Policies for information on awarding of the following scholarships.

Determination of merit-based scholarship eligibility will only consider test scores administered through February 2020 of the senior year and 7th semester (or 2nd trimester) grade point average. March 1, 2020 is the deadline for students to apply for admission in order to be considered for these scholarships. April 1, 2020 is the deadline to submit an updated transcript and/or official test score for scholarship reconsideration. Scholarships are subject to change each year for incoming new students.

Collegiate and Departmental Scholarships

In addition to the scholarships above that are awarded by the Office of Admissions, there are a variety of scholarships administered by University of Iowa colleges and departments for the incoming new student as well as the continuing University of Iowa student.
