New scholarship programs may be created each year and award amounts for existing scholarship programs are subject to change. Currently enrolled students cannot become eligible for a new scholarship or a new award amount that did not exist when they first enrolled at the University of Iowa. Determination of merit-based scholarship eligibility will only consider test scores administered through February of the senior year and 7th semester (or 2nd trimester) grade point average. March 1 is the deadline for students to apply for admission in order to be considered for these scholarships. April 1 is the deadline to submit an updated transcript and/or official test score for scholarship reconsideration. Scholarships are subject to change each year for incoming new students.
The University of Iowa National Scholars Award is for incoming first-year nonresident students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents or international students who graduate from a U.S. high school. Nonresident undergraduate first-year students who submit a complete application to the University of Iowa are automatically considered for the National Scholars Award. Scholarship awarding and amounts are based on outstanding academic merit (standardized test scores and GPA) and exceptional promise at the University of Iowa.
