Funding Opportunities

Manage the business of your education  

Funding your education is an exercise in adulthood, giving you life skills experience. IUB has many resources to help you understand and participate in the process of managing your education.

Student Central offers helpful information about applying for financial ad, beginning with the first step of filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. When you file your FAFSA, you’ll be applying for most of the financial aid offered, including loans, grants, work-study, and some scholarships. For priority awarding, be sure to fill out a new FAFSA between October 1 and April 15.

Support for your studies

There are many options available to help fund your undergraduate experience. In addition to scholarship opportunities offered by Indiana University and the College of Arts and Sciences, you might find employment in a work-study position or paid internship.

The College of Arts and Sciences, of which Psychological and Brain Sciences is a part, offers more than 350 scholarships and awards to students. Incoming students who are directly admitted to the College of Arts and Sciences with Psychological and Brain Sciences as their intended major may be eligible for a number of merit-based scholarships within the College.

High achieving students may also be recognized for Academic Excellence in the College of Arts and Sciences, or be eligible for admission to the Hutton Honors College.

Indiana University also offers many resources to help you fund your education. Visit the Office of Scholarships website for information on these and other opportunities.

Work-study employment

Not-for-profit businesses actively seek students with work-study funding to fill their part-time positions. This federally sponsored program covers 75% of your paycheck, with your local employer responsible for the rest.

Because work-study is a federally sponsored program, international students are not eligible for work-study jobs. However, immigrants who are permanent residents of the United States are eligible to apply.

Find out which local community service organizations offer work-study employment to students.

The Hutton Honors College offers Pre-Professional Internship Grants for eligible students.
