The following scholarships are available for students with disabilities and help offset the cost of tuition at Indiana University - Bloomington. The scholarships are made possible through the generosity of the donors, the Division of Student Affairs, and the Office of Disability Services for Students.

Due to funding, not all scholarships are available each year. Please check with DSS or watch for an announcement each January when an application is posted on the website.
Please review the descriptions below to determine for which awards you are eligible. Applicants must be IU Bloomington students who are registered with the Disability Services for Students office and will be enrolled full-time (at least 12 credit hours) on the Bloomington campus in the upcoming school year. Once all criteria are met for those scholarships with preference supporting students with demonstrated financial need, the expected family contribution based on FAFSA and level of Pell award will be a determining factor.
