Transfer student scholarships

Recognizing the work you've already completed

We know that transitioning from your current college or university to IUPUI can be a big step in your academic career. At IUPUI, we're committed to rewarding high-achieving transfer students with scholarship opportunities, in recognition to the work you have already taken care of.

Transfer students are eligible for two types of scholarships: admission-based awards and competitive awards.

Admission-based awards are awarded at the time of admission, and are based on your academics. Competitive awards require a separate scholarship application, in addition to your application for admission to IUPUI (unless stated otherwise).
