Indiana University Kokomo awards more than 400 scholarships annually to qualified students. The Early Scholars Program (ESP) and the Student Academic Recognition (STAR) Scholarship are distinctive merit scholarship programs for high school seniors who have outstanding academic records and demonstrate potential for college success.
Recipients of the IU Kokomo ESP, STAR, ASIST, Transfer, Pre-professional, or Direct Admit scholarship cannot recieve the scholarship if the amount puts the student over his/her cost of attendance.
Many of the scholarships awarded by IU Kokomo are funded by private donors, such as local service and charitable organizations, business and industry, and friends and alumni of Indiana University. Recipients are selected based on specific criteria, including academic performance and various levels of financial need.
In order to be considered for any scholarship, new students must be admitted to IU Kokomo by March 1, and continuing students must be registered for fall classes by May 1. Students are also encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online by March 10.
In addition, the School of Business, Division of Education, and School of Nursing award scholarships to students in those majors. Applicants for those scholarships should contact the school for additional information and application procedures.
