Unlike student loans, scholarships are a form of financial assistance that you are not required to repay. IUPUC offers three types of scholarships: admissions-based, competitive, and donor-funded.

In addition to university scholarships, we encourage you to explore those that are funded and awarded by governmental and educational agencies, community foundations, private corporations and businesses, and other organizations. You’ll find links to some of these resources here.
