High School Senior Scholarship

The Iowa Financial Know-How Challenge: Senior Scholarship is a chance for 30 Iowa high school seniors to earn $2,000 for college, all while learning important financial literacy skills.

The Senior Scholarship is a no-purchase-required scholarship open to legal U.S. residents, regardless of financial need, grade point average, class rank or intended college, who:

  • Are residents of Iowa.
  • Are senior at an Iowa high school during the 2017–2018 school year.
  • Attend college in fall 2018.

To qualify for the scholarship, students must:

  • Register by Feb. 16, 2018.
  • Complete two online financial literacy tutorials and a related online assessment created by Iowa Student Loan.

The three online components take a total of about one hour for students to complete. The 30 seniors who score highest on the assessment* will receive a $2,000 scholarship sent directly to their colleges in fall 2018.

* If a tiebreaker is necessary, tied students will be asked to write and be judged on a short essay.
