Freshman and Transfer Student Scholarships

We offer several scholarships to incoming freshmen and transfer students. You’ll be considered automatically for many of them when you apply to IUPUI.

Many of the scholarships are renewable. To maintain eligibility, you must continue to be an SoIC major and maintain full-time status by taking 12 or more credit hours each semester. If you switch to a major outside of the SoIC at any time during the award period, your scholarship will be rescinded.  Your cumulative GPA at the end of each semester must meet the requirement for your particular scholarship (listed below).

Beyond our scholarships there are opportunities for federal grants and loans for which you may qualify by completing your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). The FAFSA will also help determine your eligibility for work study. IUPUI also offers scholarships to incoming freshmen.

Online Bachelor of Science in Informatics and Online Bachelor of Science in Data Science students are not eligible for these scholarships.
