New Student Checklist

Apply for Financial Aid

Hawkeye offers eligible students federal and state financial aid, including grants, scholarships, loans, and Work-Study, based on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

The application deadline for State of Iowa funds is July 1.

File your FAFSA

Apply for Scholarships

Scholarships are available to help you pay for educational expenses and, unlike student loans, do not need to be repaid.

Hawkeye awards thousands of dollars in scholarships every year. Hawkeye scholarships are offered each semester to deserving students on the basis of achievement, registered credits, and financial need as determined by your FAFSA application, to name a few.

The application deadline for fall Hawkeye Scholarship awards is February 1 and October 1 for spring awards.
