The great news is that you can be eligible for scholarships starting as an incoming Ivy student. Our average scholarship award is $2,800 and can be combined with other scholarships and support. You’ll need to be offered admission to Iowa State University before you can apply for scholarships, so make sure to apply for admission now!

We have a long list of scholarships available, but that’s not something we want you to stress about. Completing one application ensures that you will be considered for all Ivy College of Business scholarships for which you are eligible. We’re doing all we can to make this easier for you!

Carlson Endowed Business Scholarship

“Coming from an immigrant family, I knew that scholarships were going to be one of the only ways for me to follow my educational dream. Thanks to this scholarship, I was able to continue my education. On top of that, this scholarship demonstrated to me that others see my potential to succeed…There is no greater feeling than having people alongside you who believe in you and your goals.”

Hear from Ivy scholarship recipients, Austin Suddeth, Natalie Vos, Tracy Peña and Bennett Dirkx.
