Our Opportunities

With Iowa State University’s new OneApp scholarship portal, undergraduate students can submit scholarship applications in one system.

OneApp opened for the 2021-2022 year September 1st, 2020. Deadlines will vary depending upon the scholarship or opportunity, so we encourage students to log in to OneApp early and often to ensure deadlines are met.

There will be some university scholarships not using OneApp to award 2021-2022 academic year scholarships. Go to the additional ISU scholarships page to view additional scholarships available at Iowa State.

If you have additional questions regarding scholarships, email scholarships@iastate.edu.
