Scholarships Awarded at UNI

The University of Northern Iowa offers scholarships each year to deserving students, on the basis of merit and/or achievement. The deadline for most incoming freshmen scholarships is January 15, 2015.  The deadline for current students is February 15, 2015.

Important Notes:

  • Many scholarships consider financial aid need based on FAFSA results. 
  • Scholarship selection is competitive; not all applicants will receive a scholarship. 
  • Scholarships require full-time enrollment and maintaining specific grade point requirements. 
  • The UNI Scholarship Application allows both current and incoming students to apply for scholarships available in specific majors and other University departments. Incoming students must apply to UNI before they are eligible to apply for scholarships. Many additional scholarships are awarded at the time of admission. 
  • The UNI Scholarship Directory is also a helpful tool designed to assist students in searching for scholarships.
