State Grants & Scholarships

Grant and scholarship funds are available to assist students in paying educational expenses. Unlike student loans, scholarships and grants are considered gift aid and do not need to be repaid. Below is a list of state of Iowa grants and scholarships available to Iowans.  Because each program is different, it is important to read and understand their specific eligibility requirements and application deadlines.
