I received my first scholarship from IUPUI without even applying for one. After I sent my ACT scores to the university during my senior year of high school, I received a letter from IUPUI informing me that after receiving new information, they had granted me the Dean of Faculties scholarship, which grants me $4,000 every year (for four years) as long as I maintain the requirements of the scholarship (7 volunteer hours for the school year and a GPA of at least 3.5).
Near the end of my freshman year, I applied to live in the Women in Science House, which is a residential based learning community. I was accepted into this community (which is made up of 30 women who have a high academic performance and are majoring in some form of science (mine is chemistry)). Just by accepting the offer into this community, I earned another scholarship of a little over $2,000 for the school year. This is a great way to pick up a scholarship from the university. I will have the chance to become friends with 29 other women who have similar interests as me, get to know faculty members who are involved with science and research programs at the university, and be part of a great support system while earning some money to help with the expenses of living on campus (Women in Science live in one of the Riverwalk apartments on campus).
It seems that there are more scholarship opportunities for incoming freshman, so be sure to seek the admission based scholarships.
It went alright. My dad was laid off for a long time and he finally got a job right when we were filing for FASFA. We were still low on money but since he had a job then we really didn't get a lot to help out and had to get a loan.
I might as well still live at home with my family until i turn 24 because I am still called dependent despite financial independence, and refused any aid other than loans.
All the financial aid lady did when I visited was hand me a pamphlet to fastweb.com. I didn't expect a whole office was dedicated to redirecting people to google. Some people get this financial aid stuff to work really well, but I can't, and it's very frustrating
Got the financial aid that I needed
Sorry, there are no reviews.
