Scholarships are awarded on a variety of criteria as outlined by the various donors. This may include:
- Academic merit
- Financial need
- Leadership and/or involvement in the iSchool community
- Demonstrated interest in a specific career field
- Demographic considerations such as gender and ethnicity
Scholarships awarded on the basis of financial need (need-based) require students submit a FAFSA form. The priority deadline for completing the FAFSA form is Feb. 28 each year. Students are encouraged to submit a FAFSA form to provide the widest option for scholarship consideration. Note: not all scholarships are need-based. You are still considered for an award even if you don’t complete the FAFSA.
