Helping You Pay for Learning Opportunities
We do whatever we can to help you get the best education. The College of Human Sciences and its programs offer approximately $1.5 million in scholarships and financial aid each year to qualified students.
The College of Human Sciences uses the same online application (the OneApp) as the Iowa State University Office of Financial Aid to gather your information and consider you for appropriate scholarships from our pool of more than 100 scholarship funds.
When you complete the CHS portion of the OneApp application, the college works to match you to the correct scholarship based on the criteria of each of the 100+ scholarship funds.
Submitting a complete OneApp application and any additional materials OneApp recommends you apply for automatically ensures you will be considered for department or school-level scholarships and university-level scholarships. The OneApp application takes about an hour to complete, and you can save and complete it at a later time if needed. You will need your Iowa State Net ID to start your application.
The online scholarship application page explains requirements, deadlines, and other details for CHS undergraduates (incoming freshmen, transfer, and current students).
Academic Unit Scholarship Listings
Academic units have lists of their own department/school scholarships available on their websites. Remember that you are considered for school/department-level scholarships when you complete the CHS application form.
