Last-Dollar Scholarship Program

What is the Last-Dollar Scholarship?

The Future-Ready Iowa Last-Dollar Scholarship was implemented to help support the State of Iowa's goal to have 70 percent of Iowans in the workforce having education or training beyond high school by 2025.

This goal will help provide Iowan's with many great career opportunities, and employers will have the skilled workforce they need to grow and innovate.

The Last-Dollar Scholarship Program helps students cover expenses related to attending college. As the name suggests, this scholarship opportunity may be awarded to qualifying students to close the gap between financial aid awards and the costs associated with attending college.
