Off-Campus Scholarships

Start your scholarship search early in your high school career. Search within your high school and community for additional scholarships. Check into opportunities with your high school guidance office, places of employment, civic or religious organizations and businesses in the community. While your hometown may be the best place to start, don't forget about other off-campus opportunities. Remember that all scholarship searches/applications should be free of charge!

Below are some websites we recommend:

  • www.FastWeb.com

  • www.finaid.org

  • www.iowacollegeaid.org

  • The UNI Scholarship Directory is used by the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships to post UNI specific scholarships and off-campus scholarships our office has been notified of. It is not a complete list of off-campus scholarships. Remember to complete the UNI Scholarship Application to be considered for UNI scholarships.

Reporting Off-Campus Scholarships

If you are receiving a scholarship from a source other than UNI, we are required by federal regulations to include these funds in you financial award. You can report additional financial aid award notification online:
