Our Opportunities

Automatch Scholarships: Once you complete your General Application, you will be matched with scholarships for which you immediately qualify based on school reported data – no further action is required. To see a list of scholarships that may need additional action on your part to receive consideration, select “Recommended” under “Opportunities.” All students who qualify will be automatched to these opportunities. Qualifying does not guarantee you will receive a scholarship only that you are now eligible to be considered for one.

Browsing “All” Scholarships: Below is a list of all scholarship opportunities within Indiana State University’s AcademicWorks system. The majority are for the 2020-2021 academic year. The “Deadline” column indicates the deadline to complete the application including submitted letters of recommendation to receive consideration. This is not the deadline to accept the award.

Award Amount: The number and award amount of scholarships are for general information purposes only and should not be considered a guarantee of what you will receive if selected. Actual award amounts vary based on students’ individual eligibility, funds available, and other factors.
