Applications must be submitted online starting December 26 prior to year of entry. The deadline for transfer scholarship applications is February 15.
Scholarship Eligibility Requirements
You must be enrolled in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences for scholarship eligibility.
Scholarship winners are selected by the College Scholarships and Awards Committee based on specific criteria listed for each scholarship, plus academic achievement, professional promise and leadership. Most of the scholarships awarded require students to show financial need.
Financial need guidelines:
NOTE: Although the official FAFSA deadline is March 1, we encourage filing before March 1 to avoid technical problems that may occur if too many people are filing at the last minute.
You may fill out the scholarship application before filing for FAFSA. The two processes are separate. We will obtain your FAFSA score from the Office of Student Financial Aid the second week of March.
Scholarship recipients are notified in April. Awards payments will be distributed in equal installments at the beginning of the fall and spring semesters and credited to the student's university account.
Departmental scholarships also are available. Contact the department's office for information. Click here for a listing of departmental scholarship website links.
For questions, contact the office of the associate dean for academic programs at 515-294-6614.
You will be considered for all the scholarships listed below by filling out this single application.
