Scholarships & Financial Aid

With Iowa State University’s OneApp scholarship portal, undergraduate students can submit scholarship applications in one system. The Office of Student Financial Aid, academic colleges and departments and other campus units (e.g., Student Affairs Central Office, Program for Women in Science and Engineering, Student Accessibility Services, etc.) will use the information available in OneApp to select scholarship recipients.

Deadlines will vary depending upon the scholarship or opportunity, so we encourage you to log in to OneApp early and often to ensure deadlines are met. Once submitted, you can still access and revise your application(s) until the scholarship close date.

The following are donor-supported scholarship funds specific to the College of Design and our departments.
