Federal supplemental awards for students in need

See how you can get supplemental federal awards for your undergraduate education at IU Indianapolis.

What is a Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)?

It is a federal grant for undergraduate students with exceptional financial need. Each year, IU Indianapolis receives a certain amount of funds from the US Department of Education’s Office of Federal Student Aid. Once the university awards the full amount of these funds to students, no more awards will be made until the next academic year.

How do I know if I’m eligible for an award?

You may be eligible if you:

  • Are an undergraduate student pursuing your first bachelor’s degree
  • Have a Student Aid Index between 0 and -1500

Federal regulations give priority to students receiving Federal Pell Grants.

How much will I be awarded?

You can receive between $100 and $4,000 per year. This depends on:

  • Your financial need
  • When you apply
  • Amount of other aid you’ve received
  • Availability of funds at IU Indianapolis

How do I apply for an award?

All you need to do is submit your FAFSA (school code 001813) each year. Be sure to submit as early as possible for a greater chance of receiving these federal funds.

How will I know if I’m awarded?

You will be able to view your award on your One.iu account under Financial aid, or on your Financial Aid Notification provided to new students via USPS mail. Your award will be called Federal Supplemental Grant in your financial aid award package.
