Finding For Scholarships

Many scholarships are available from across campus based on a wide variety of criteria for eligibility. Exploring the many opportunities that exist can open up new possibilities for funding a student's career at ISU.

To help make the process of finding scholarships easier, the Financial Aid Office has developed a tool called Scholarship Finder that allows students to search for awards.
