Financial Resources

Get the financial assistance you need to get through college

We know that finances can be a barrier to starting college or completing your degree, and IUPUI has dozens of resources, options, and opportunities to help you remove those barriers. Scholarships, emergency funding resources, financial aid, and financial wellness resources are all available to you.

Experiencing financial challenges

If you are experiencing financial challenges or hardships, you might be eligible for additional emergency funding. You can apply for this funding through an online application, and someone will be in contact with you as soon as possible. Please note, if you are an IUPUI graduate or undergraduate student from abroad on an F-1 or J-1 visa, you are not eligible for this emergency fund. You may apply for grant or loan assistance through the Office of International Affairs.
