Indiana University is dedicated to enrolling an enriched student body by valuing academic achievement and awarding merit scholarships. IU Achievement Scholarships are awarded to students based on high academic performance. Academic performance will be assessed based on information provided through the IU Admissions application, including official test scores and high school transcript information.

The deadline for the IU Achievement Scholarships and for maximum scholarship consideration is November 1, 2014. In order to be considered for these scholarships, students must submit a complete Admissions application by this date. No additional application is required for these scholarships. Scholarships are awarded based on academic information provided at the time of admission to IU.

Students who meet the November 1 deadline may submit updated SAT and/or ACT scores until January 15, 2015 for additional scholarship consideration.  Students who qualify for additional scholarship funding based on updated test scores will receive an award notification in early February. Only test scores received directly from the testing agency will be considered for scholarship and admission processes.
