Updates to scholarships for students starting Fall 2020 due

  1. All new incoming freshmen and new incoming transfer students (resident and domestic non-resident) who met the February 15 scholarship deadline and received a 4, 2, or 1-year "recruitment" scholarship offer to ISU will have until 7/1/2020 to accept their offer. 
  2. Students who were previously admitted to ISU, completed a deferment form, and now planning on returning to ISU early (starting Fall 2020), will receive their "grid" or other "recruitment scholarship starting Fall 2020.  This includes students that returned early from missions, military, etc.
  3. Many "auto-match" scholarship opportunities available to incoming freshman (endowed/annual funds) have been extended in BOSS to 6/1/2020 to allow students who are now planning to attend ISU to still apply for these scholarships.  Students need to log into BOSS and complete the short "general" application to be considered for these.  The 2/15 deadline has not been extended due to budget costs and issues with reviewing these students off of different qualification criteria from those that met the deadline.  
    • Note: "Auto-match" opportunities are those opportunities in the Bengal Online Scholarship System (BOSS) that don't require extra steps.  Once they log into BOSS and complete the short general application they will be auto-matched to scholarship opportunities in which they are eligible (no essay or other information required).
