Undergraduate Scholarships

General application scholarships

To be considered for the majority of our scholarships, current students complete one general online application annually. Students are evaluated based on merit and need.

The deadline for the general application is in January.

Additional scholarship opportunities

The following scholarships require a separate application. Application processes and deadlines vary.

Freshman scholarships

The Media School has several scholarships available to high-achieving incoming freshmen, some of which are renewable.

The scholarships below are awarded through IU’s Selective Scholarship Application.

To be eligible to complete the SSA, you must apply for admission to IU by Nov. 1 and indicate your interest in journalism, media or game design.

Once admitted, top students will be invited to complete the SSA. In previous years, students invited to complete the SSA have had SAT scores upward of 1310 and ACT scores of at least 28, and GPAs of 3.7 or higher or a top 15 percent ranking in their class.
