staff council scholarships

The ISU Staff Scholarship was originally established in 1988 to provide financial assistance for ISU staff who choose to continue their education.  Through the continuing hard work and generosity of ISU employees, the endowment provides several scholarships each academic year.

The number of scholarships awarded is determined by the amount of money available for disbursement, but no scholarship will be less than $600 for the academic year.  Each recipient will receive $300 for use during the fall semester and $300 for the spring semester.  Any unused scholarship dollars will remain in the income portion of the endowment for future scholarships.
