Scholarship Deadlines

OneApp will open September 20, 2023 for the 2024-2025 scholarship year.

Deadlines for Office of Student Financial Aid and College/Departmental Scholarships are listed below. Students can apply to these scholarships usingĀ OneApp.

Departments may have different deadlines than those listed below. Check with your college/department for specific information about departmental deadlines.

Applications must be submitted by 11:59 PM CST the date they are due.

As a result of the 2024-25 FAFSA updated timeline, we have pushed back certain application deadlines. We have changed opportunity close dates while awaiting the 2024-25 FAFSA information needed for scholarship selection. Until FAFSAs are received at Iowa State, any financial-need-based opportunities you may qualify for will show as “ineligible,” which would qualify you for certain opportunities in OneApp. Please check on opportunities in late March to see if you are eligible for any scholarships that may show as “ineligible” currently. Email notifications will go out notifying you of additional applications.
