Scholarships for International Students

The Tippie College of Business awards a very limited number of scholarship aid packages to international students. Competition for these scholarships is fierce; applicants will be considered for all aid packages for which they are eligible.

Apply by the priority deadline of December 15, 2019, to be eligible for one of the funding packages. No additional scholarship application is necessary. Later applicants will be considered for scholarships if funds are available.

We encourage applicants to apply for both scholarships and grants for STEM-based graduate programs to help offset the cost of tuition. In addition, all students are encouraged to research and apply for third-party scholarships to this STEM-certified degree program. Specific scholarships and funding assistance may be available through private businesses, current employers, local, state and federal government programs, professional organizations, endowed foundations, and other organizations.

Teaching Assistantships

Being a TA at Tippie is more than grading papers—you actually teach finance to undergraduates. We’ll provide you with the training you need to be an effective instructor, and the immersive experience teaching, communicating, and presenting concepts will serve you in good stead throughout your career. Being a TA also pays off in dollars and cents. You’ll receive a $9k scholarship, plus tuition discounted to the Iowa resident rate if you’re a non-resident. Depending on your responsibility level, you’ll also receive an annual salary between $10,000 to $20,000. Plus, as an employee of the university, you’ll get stellar health insurance at a deep discount.

A limited number of teaching assistantships are available as determined by department need. Apply by the priority deadline of December 15, 2019, if you’d like to be considered for a TA position.
