Applying for Foundation Scholarships

Complete an Application through AwardSpring

The application process to receive a scholarship in the 2022-2023 academic year is OPEN. Make yourself eligible to receive a scholarship from the USI Foundation in the 2022-2023 academic year by completing the AwardSpring application. Click on the AwardSpring icon  through My USI to complete an application. Applications must be submitted no later than January 30, 2022

By submitting the AwardSpring application, which takes less than 20 minutes to complete, you will have eligibility to receive a scholarship from the USI Foundation in the 2021-2022 academic year. Submitting an application does not guarantee you will receive a scholarship. A new scholarship application must be submitted each academic year. Completed applications will be evaluated and students selected to receive a scholarship will be notified between March 15 - 31, 2022

If you have any Foundation Scholarship questions and would like to speak with a scholarship team member, please call (812) 461-5317 or (812) 465-7172. You may also email at: In person appointments are not being made at this time due to COVID-19, but a virtual Zoom appointment can be scheduled if your questions cannot be resolved by phone or email.

If you are seeking immediate financial assistance, please complete a Financial Care Team Referral by following this link: and someone will be in contact with you shortly.

Current, incoming and transfer students should click on the AwardSpring icon through MyUSI to complete a single application. The software will automatically match potential recipients to scholarships based on application information and criteria established by the scholarship donor.

Information obtained during admission to the University will be automatically uploaded to the AwardSpring application; however, a student must access and complete the entire AwardSpring application to be eligible to receive a scholarship through the USI Foundation. Current students who have completed at least one semester will also have their major and GPA automatically uploaded. A new scholarship application must be submitted each academic year.
