Start your scholarship search early in your high school career. Search within your high school and community for additional scholarships. Check into opportunities with your high school guidance office, places of employment, civic or religious organizations and businesses in the community. While your hometown may be the best place to start, don't forget about other off-campus opportunities. Remember that all scholarship searches/applications should be free of charge!
The UNI Scholarship Directory is used by the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships to post UNI specific scholarships and off-campus scholarships of which our office has been notified. It is not a complete list of off-campus scholarships. Remember to complete the UNI Scholarship Application to be considered for UNI scholarships.
T.E.A.C.H. (Teacher Education and Compensation Helps) Early Childhood IOWA is a comprehensive scholarship program that provides the early childhood workforce access to educational opportunities and is helping establish a well-qualified, fairly compensated, and stable workforce for our children.
Reporting Off-Campus Scholarships
We are required by federal regulations to include all financial aid on your financial aid offer. If you receive scholarships from sources outside of UNI (known as "off-campus" scholarships), you must report these to our office so we can add them to your offer. You can report additional financial aid on your MyUNIverse account:
- Log in to MyUNIverse
- Go to your Student Center
- Scroll down to the Finances section
- Click on "Report Other Financial Aid"
Off-Campus Donors (hometown)

If you would like the check to credit for the fall semester, our office should receive the check by July 31. If the credit is to occur during spring term, our office should receive the check by December 15.
