IU Indianapolis Scholarship Opportunities

We are committed to rewarding your achievements

At Indiana University Indianapolis, we take note of the success our students have across all programs and schools and provide them with the resources to go even further. That's why we award millions of dollars each year to students across all of our academic schools and programs.

Here are some highlights of the awards that could be waiting for you, most of which start with filling out our general scholarship application

Did you know? Beginning freshmen who apply for admission by February 15 are automatically considered for a Crimson Pride Award? Transfer students have until June 1.

IU Indianapolis Promise Award

If you are an Indiana resident admitted to IU Indianapolis as a first year student with a high school GPA of 3.5 or higher, and you qualify for the Federal Pell Grant, we've got you covered. In addition to your Pell grant, you may also receive our IU Indianapolis Promise Award, which covers the remainder of your tuition and fees at IU Indianapolis that are not covered by the Pell Grant or other gift aid. 

Pell Grants are a form of financial aid offered by the US Department of Education to students earning their first undergraduate degree, who have filed the FAFSA and are determined to have an exceptional financial need.

The IU Indianapolis Honors College

The IU Indianapolis Honors College offers incoming freshmen, who have proven themselves academically and beyond, the opportunity to apply for four competitive scholarships that provide students with financial and academic support. Students must have an application for admission to IU Indianapolis submitted by November 1 and an application to the Honors College on file by November 15 to be considered for one of these awards.
