Fees & Financial Aid
In recent years, IUP has been able to award about $100,000 annually in fellowship funds. All academic year applicants are eligible for fellowship aid, according to the combined criteria of merit and need. Fellowships come in the form of partial program fees reductions and are intended to supplement other resources available to the student. A financial aid section is on the application. There is no IUP financial aid available for the IUP Summer Intensive Program.
Applicants are encouraged to apply for any and all scholarships and fellowships for which they are eligible and which can be used for study overseas. There are many granting agencies and we have provided some initial contacts below.
