Thanks to our generous donors, you may apply for donor-supported scholarships to help offset the cost of your education. Donor scholarships are available for qualified full-time undergraduate, graduate and seminary students.
If you are awarded a donor scholarship it can replace a portion or all of your other CIU aid.
The priority deadline for Donor Scholarship Applications is March 31st, 2024.
The Financial Aid Office is glad to offer you a master donor scholarship application. Now you only have to complete and submit one application to be considered for multiple donor scholarships for which you may qualify.
In addition to submitting a donor scholarship application, you must submit a current-year FAFSA. International students are not required to submit a FAFSA, but may still apply for a donor scholarship provided the other eligibility requirements are met.
Each scholarship has specific qualifications which are listed above. All scholarships require that you are a full-time student for the fall and spring semesters. Summer courses do not count towards full-time status. New graduate students applying for scholarships must be accepted to CIU.
Students not eligible for donor scholarships:
- New undergraduate students for the 2024-2025 academic year
- Students receiving Educational Benefits
- Doctoral students
- Students in Online-only programs of study and are not pursuing a Master of Arts or Master of Divinity
- Students taking courses not required for their degree
