Future Ready Iowa Last-Dollar Scholarship
The Future Ready Iowa Last-Dollar Scholarship is intended to cover tuition for students in programs that lead to high-demand jobs in Iowa. If other state and federal programs do not cover the entire cost of tuition for a post-secondary certificate, diploma, or associate degree, the Future Ready Iowa Last-Dollar Scholarship will fill the gap and pays up to 100% of tuition. If you already receive full tuition through federal or state grants, and meet eligibility requirements, you will receive $250 if you are enrolled full-time or $125 if you are enrolled part-time through the Iowa Future Ready Last Dollar Scholarship.
The Future Ready Iowa Last-Dollar Scholarship is available to:
New high school graduates who enroll in a qualified program of study full-time for the fall immediately following high school graduation.
Adult learners, age 20 and older by the July 1 deadline, who enroll in a qualified program of study full-time or part-time with a minimum of 6 credits.
All students must file the FAFSA, attend orientation, meet with an advisor, remain continuously enrolled, make satisfactory academic progress, and meet ongoing requirements.
Students can receive the Future Ready Iowa Last-Dollar Scholarship for up to five full-time semesters or eight part-time semesters.
