When you add up all the scholarships, grants, loans, and other forms of financial aid you can get, IU’s relatively inexpensive education becomes even more affordable.
Just by applying to IU, you’ll be considered for several scholarships, including Automatic Academic Scholarships ranging from $4,000 to $36,000 over four years. If you’re admitted to IU and meet the initial criteria, you’ll receive a Selective Scholarship Application, which you can fill out for a chance to earn even more scholarships. And then there are scholarships offered by the School of Informatics and Computing, the IU Alumni Association, and other sources—and don’t forget grants, loans, and work-study.
Check out the financial aid info from the Office of Admissions, the Office of Scholarships, and the Office of Student Financial Assistance. Admissions also has information about financial aid for international students.
Informatics and Computing Scholarships
Sure, IU offers a lot of scholarships, but we wanted to offer more just for informatics and computer science students. Below are examples of scholarship opportunities available to our students. Students who are invited to complete the selective scholarship application will also be considered for the following scholarships. If you need to submit any supporting materials, send them to Nancy Lemons (nlemons [at] indiana [dot] edu).
All of the scholarships below are available to both informatics and computer science students, unless otherwise noted.
