IUP Scholarships

  • Get rewarded for your academic achievement!

    When applying to IUP, you’re considered for one of our four-year renewable IUP Scholarships—with no additional application required. The award amounts are determined based on a combination of your high school GPA and SAT/ACT score (if you have one). Remember, an SAT/ACT score isn’t required for admission or to be eligible for IUP scholarships, so no worries if you haven’t taken them yet.

    Our biggest tip? Don’t wait to apply for admission! You’ll want to apply early for maximum scholarship consideration.

    In-state $4,000 $3,000 $2,000 $1,000
    Out-of-state $4,500 $3,500 $2,500 $1,500
    Transfer $2,500 $2,000 $1,500 $1,000


    You will be notified of your scholarship award by mail within a couple of weeks after you receive your admission packet. Half of the scholarship will be applied to your student account in your first semester. The second half will be applied the following semester.

    Your scholarship will be renewed each year, which means you will receive your scholarship for a total of 8 continuous semesters (fall and spring) as long as you are making satisfactory academic progress,  enrolled on a full-time basis (at least 12 credits per semester), and have no lapses in your enrollment at IUP.

    IUP scholarships are made possible by the generous support of alumni and friends of IUP and IUP’s commitment to our students’ success.
