The State of Iowa has additional grants and scholarships available to Iowa residents.
When you finish the FAFSA, you’ll see a prompt asking if you want to complete the Iowa Financial Aid application as well. Say yes. That prompt actually leads to something called the “Eligibility Wizard,” a short series of simple questions to determine whether you might be eligible for additional state aid. If you’re not eligible, you’re done. If you meet initial eligibility requirements, you’ll see instructions to continue the application process for those additional grants and scholarships.
If your FAFSA didn’t link to the Iowa Financial Aid Application, or if you didn’t follow the link, you can still apply.
Non-Iowa residents should look at the funding options available in their state.
