Last Dollar Scholarship

Students attending Indian Hills Community College may qualify for the 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 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, students must enroll at least half-time for the 2023-2024 year. All students must file the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) prior to July 15 (for the 23/24 year), attend orientation, meet with an advisor, remain continuously enrolled, and make satisfactory academic progress. Qualified students will need to reapply each year.

NEW FOR 2023-2024
Students must also have an Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) of less than $20,000 to qualify (Senate File 560: Education Appropriations Bill, signed 06/01/23). Please see the newly released letter of explanation from Iowa College Aid regarding the new EFC requirement.

If you’d like to estimate your EFC, please use the EFC Calculator
