IU Columbus Grants

Our pledge to your success

When you succeed at IU Columbus, we succeed. When you file the FAFSA by the April 15 state aid deadline you will be considered for the need-based IU Columbus Pledge Grant. This grant represents IU Columbus's commitment to your success — when you pledge to meet or exceed expectations, we pledge to support your education financially.

The IU Columbus Pledge Grant is available for up to four years and ranges from $500 to $4,000 annually, based on financial need.
