University of Southern Indiana
Scholarships
USI students in the classroom

Students may receive scholarships from a number of different sources. New students are encouraged to apply for admission no later than March 1 prior to their initial fall semester to ensure consideration for all scholarships. Many scholarships also require completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) prior to March 10 each year. Some scholarships require a separate application (noted).

Students who apply for admission to USI by March 1 of their senior year of high school and complete the FAFSA by March 10 are automatically considered for one of approximately 50 merit-based USI Foundation Scholarships awarded each year. Awards range from $400 to $2,000 per academic year. Scholarship recipients are notified in mid-April.

It is recommended that students attach a list of extra-curricular activities and community service to their USI Admission Application. These scholarships, except as noted, are renewable based upon continued enrollment and maintenance of specific grade point minimums.

Some of the scholarships listed below (as specified) are awarded to current students through the department of their major.
