  • Scholarship Opportunities

     

    Each scholarship has its own application process and selection criteria. Some scholarships are one-time awards, while others are renewable for multiple years. Scholarships and grants require a completed FAFSA application; follow the link on the Guidance Page for access to the FAFSA application. Online applications are open beginning October 1 prior to the academic year for which you plan to attend.  For the complete list of scholarships that Iowa College Student Aid Commission offers, click on the link.

    Individual colleges may offer internal scholarships—visit the school websites, or view the college files located in the career center for further information.  All colleges encourage students to file a Free Application for Student Federal Aid in addition to any scholarships.
