Scholarships

At IUPUI, scholarships are broken into two categories:

  • Admission-based awards: automatic scholarships that are awarded at the time you are admitted to IUPUI. These awards are determined by your high school GPA and SAT or ACT scores. No separate scholarship applications are required for these awards.
  • Competitive awards: scholarships which require a separate application, and may be based on majors, financial need, academic performance, or extracurricular activities. These awards may require an essay specific to the scholarship, in addition to the application.

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

Rewarding your success in high school

It's true —  you can qualify for a scholarship just by submitting your application to IUPUI!

If you meet the criteria below, the scholarship will be listed in your letter of admission. Admission-based scholarships are not stackable — meaning you'll only receive one of these awards.

The following criteria and award amounts for admission-based scholarships are for students entering IUPUI in the 2019-2020 academic year. These awards and criteria are evaluated each year and are subject to change. 

Admission-based scholarships for Indiana residents

If you are a resident of Indiana and apply to IUPUI by February 1, you'll automatically be considered for one of these scholarships.

Admission-based scholarships for out-of-state MSEP residents

If you are a resident of a Midwest Student Exchange Program partner state (Illinois, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, North Dakota, Ohio, or Wisconsin) and apply to IUPUI by April 1, you'll automatically be considered for one of these scholarships.

Admission-based awards for MSEP students admitted to IUPUI are stackable with IUPUI's Midwest Student Exchange Program Award.

 

Admission-based scholarships for all other out-of-state residents

If you are a resident of a state other than Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, North Dakota, Ohio, or Wisconsin and apply to IUPUI by April 1, you'll automatically be considered for one of these scholarships.

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
