Scholarships for hardworking and talented students
Incoming freshmen, apply by November 1
To be considered for IU Academic Scholarships, you must submit a complete application for admission including official transcript, essay, and test scores (if applicable) by the early action (non-binding) deadline of November 1.
If you meet the November 1 scholarship deadline, you may submit updated SAT and/or ACT scores until January 15 for additional scholarship consideration. Updated scores will be evaluated and notification will be made on a rolling basis for those who qualify. After the November 1 deadline, scholarship opportunities are limited.
