Last Dollar Scholarship

Students attending Indian Hills Community College may qualify for the new Future Ready Iowa Last-Dollar Scholarship. 

The scholarship is intended to cover tuition for students in fields that lead to high-demand jobs in Iowa. If a student's existing state and federal aid programs do not cover the entire cost for a certificate, diploma, or associate degree at Indian Hills, the Last-Dollar Scholarship will fill the gap. Eligible programs may change from year to year, so please make sure to check if your program is covered by reviewing our listing of programs per academic year (listed below).

To be eligible, new high school graduates must enroll full-time.  Adult learners, over the age of 20, are eligible to enroll full- or part-time.  All students must file the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), attend orientation, meet with an advisor, remain continuously enrolled, and make satisfactory academic progress.  The Iowa Last Dollar Scholarship is not based off Estimated Family Contribution (EFC). Qualified students will need to reapply each year.
