Complete the FAFSA
Some scholarship awarding is based on demonstrated financial need. To be considered for any need-based awards, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the appropriate year. The FAFSA opens each October for the next academic year.
We encourage students to submit the FAFSA as soon as possible.
If you need assistance with the FAFSA.gov, please contact the ISU Financial Aid Office at (208) 282-2756.
