Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) is a public research university located in Indianapolis, Indiana. Belonging to the university systems of both Indiana University and Purdue University, it is the result of a merger in 1969 of the Purdue Indianapolis Extension Center (1946) and Indiana University Indianapolis (1916).
Annually, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) USA offers several undergraduate scholarships for international students including many awards just for freshmen.
All IUPUI scholarships require full-time enrollment in the fall and spring semesters. If you take the SAT or ACT examination more than once, the highest scores will be used for scholarship consideration. Scholarship funds cannot be used for intensive study of English as a Second Language.
