Admissions-Based Scholarships

Rewarding Your Hard Work

If you are a high school senior nearing graduation and plan to attend IUPUC in the fall semester after graduating, you may be eligible for automatic scholarships from IUPUC. Each year, we award a variety of Admission-Based Scholarships to students based on their academic achievement.

To qualify, you must apply to IUPUC by May 1 of your senior year (or December 1 for the Spring semester) and meet specific scholarship criteria. No application or supporting materials are required unless indicated. Some admission-based scholarships are based on need, so be sure to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (or FAFSA) when it becomes available October 1 for fullest consideration.

If you are eligible for a scholarship, you will be notified when the Office of Student Financial Services sends out Financial Aid Notifications.
