Tuition Scholarships

Carver Scholars Program

The Carver Scholarship is awarded to full-time students who will be starting their junior year in the fall semester of the award year. Recipients will be students of great potential and promise, who have worked hard to make ends meet and have been faced with challenging or debilitating situations in their lives. A qualified applicant must be able to demonstrate that his or her circumstances and accomplishments, when combined with financial and merit determination, might be overlooked in other types of student aid programs, but nevertheless represent high achievement and determination in the face of significant obstacles. Applicants must be a U.S. citizen and have graduated from an accredited high school in the State of Iowa or have been a resident of Iowa for at least five consecutive years immediately prior to application. Eligible students must demonstrate financial need by filing the FAFSA prior to March 1 of the award year. Students must have a minimum grade-point average of 2.8 on a 4.0 scale. Applications are available on the Roy J. Carver Charitable Trust web site, at www.carvertrust.org (under the Scholarships tab at the top of the page, select the Prospective Applicants link on the right side of the screen).

This scholarship is often renewable for the senior year after specific minimal requirements have been met, but such renewal is not automatic and scholarship recipients must complete a renewal application form at www.carvertrust.org (under the Scholarships tab at the top of the page, select the Apply Online Renewal link on the right side of the screen).
