Once you have an idea of how much your education will cost, it's time to look for ways to fund your education. You have a lot of options when it comes to finding financial aid to help you attend Indiana University Indianapolis. Before you borrow money, make sure you understand every type of aid available. You may be able to avoid loans altogether!

First step: Complete the FAFSA

Our students come from all over the world to study with world-class faculty and to prepare for careers as leading public health professionals and researchers. No matter where you're from or what background you have, there are options for helping you fund your education ... and we're here to help!

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid is the first step students take toward funding their education.

When you submit your FAFSA, you’ll automatically be considered for a variety of state and federal financial aid programs, including grants, work-study positions, and loans.

The priority deadline for submitting your FAFSA is March 10.

Submit your FAFSA


If you have financial need, you may qualify for one or more grants. Grants are known as “gift aid” and don’t have to be paid back. While you may automatically be considered for a wide range of grants when you complete your FAFSA, some grants may require separate applications. So it helps to also search for grants on your own to increase your chances of getting the funding you need.

Search for grants

Grants for your grants

Already have a grant? You may be able to get supplemental grants for your grants.

IU Indianapolis students who have a 21st Century Scholarship, Frank O’Bannon Grant, or Federal Pell Grant may be eligible to receive an IU Indianapolis Pledge Grant.

For example, the 21st Century Scholarship provides up to four years of undergraduate tuition. The IU Indianapolis Pledge Grant can supplement your 21st Century Scholarship to help with other expenses outside of tuition such as room and board, fees, text books, and other eligible expenses.
