Scholarships & Financial Aid
Students can use their financial aid packages for the Rome Program. All questions about financial aid, including eligibility, the FAFSA form, resources for additional funding, and the time line for release of aid should be directed to Tiffany Wood, the financial aid officer for study abroad in the Office of 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 (eg., 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.

OneApp will close Feb. 3, 2020, for the awarding of 2020-21 scholarships.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.
