About WiSE Scholarships

WiSE scholarships are based on financial need and awarded each academic year to current students who are enrolled in STEM majors at Iowa State.

The WiSE Scholarship Application is part of the University Scholarship Application (OneApp). You will be asked if you would like to be eligible for the WiSE Scholarship. Please select yes if you would like to be considered. The WiSE scholarship utilizes questions answered in the Iowa State General Application to determine awards. Scholarship recipients will be notified of their awards via One App communication.
