Applying for Hawkeye Scholarships

Hawkeye offers scholarships each semester to deserving students on the basis of achievement, registered credits and financial need determined by the FAFSA application, to name a few.

Scholarship selection is competitive; not all applicants will receive a scholarship.

Step 1Apply for Admission

To apply for Hawkeye scholarships you must be accepted to Hawkeye Community College as you will need your Hawkeye login credentials to login to the scholarship application. If you have not already done so, complete the online Admissions application.

To receive your awarded scholarships, you must be registered for classes by the first day of the semester.

Step 2Apply for Hawkeye Scholarships

By completing the Hawkeye Scholarship application(s), you will be applying for dozens of scholarships awarded by the Hawkeye Foundation.

You will need to submit a scholarship application each semester to qualify.

Step 3Apply for Financial Aid

Many scholarships are awarded on financial need determined by your FAFSA. To be eligible for need-based Hawkeye scholarships, please apply for financial aid by submitting your FAFSA.

See application deadlines.

Step 4Register for Classes

Scholarships are awarded prior to registration opening. You will be asked to confirm the number of credits you plan to register for within the application process. If you are awarded a scholarship based on credits this will be verified prior to the start of the semester. If you do not meet the registration requirements, your scholarship will be canceled.

Step 5Watch Your Hawkeye Email for Scholarship Award Notification

If you have been awarded a scholarship, you will be notified by email on or before the awarding date.

Hawkeye scholarship awards are credited to your student account. If you owe less than what you have been awarded, the Business Office will mail you a refund check.
