Hawkeye offers eligible students federal and state financial aid, including grants, 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. Don't wait, file your FAFSA today.
Apply for Scholarships
You can also apply for scholarships, money that does not have to be repaid, to use for educational expenses.
Hawkeye awards thousands of dollars in scholarships every year. By completing one Hawkeye Scholarship Application you will be considered for dozens of scholarships. Awards may be based on cumulative grade point average, financial need, number of credit hours, or specific program. The application deadline for fall scholarship awards is March 1 and October 1 for spring awards.
