At IUPUI, scholarships are broken into different categories:

  • Admission-based scholarships: automatic scholarships that are awarded at the time you are admitted to IUPUI based by your high school GPA and SAT or ACT scores. No separate scholarship applications are required for these awards. Some admission-based scholarships are based on need, so be sure to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (or FAFSA) when it becomes available October 1 for fullest consideration.
  • Honors College scholarships: competitive scholarships awarded to high-achieving incoming freshmen who apply to IUPUI and the IUPUI Honors College by November 15. 
  • Competitive scholarships, including diversity scholarships: scholarships that require a separate application, and may be based on your major, financial need, academic performance, or extracurricular activities. These awards may require an essay specific to the scholarship or the FAFSA, in addition to the application.

No matter which of these awards you explore, the first step is to apply for admission to IUPUI.

The IUPUI Honors College

The IUPUI Honors College offers high-achieving incoming freshmen the opportunity to apply to four competitive scholarship programs. Scholarship recipients are determined based on a variety of factors: the strength of academic curriculum in high school, standardized test results, grade trends, and qualities specified in each scholarship program. 

Applicants must apply for admission to IUPUI and complete the IUPUI Honors College Scholarship by November 15
