Welcome, future Cyclone

Iowa State’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS) awards scholarships to incoming first-year students each year.

The LAS OneApp Scholarship Application for incoming first-year students is open from September 20, 2023 – March 28, 2024. You can continue with OneApp after March 28 to be considered for department scholarships with a different deadline.

OneApp will ask about your experiences, activities, jobs, interests, and plans. Complete the General and College of Liberal Arts and Sciences sections in OneApp to be considered. OneApp may recommend additional scholarship opportunities for you to explore. We encourage you to apply for scholarships every year at Iowa State.

How do I sign into OneApp?

If you have already accepted your offer of admission, you should sign into OneApp with your Net-ID. Do you still need to create your Net-ID? Sign into your admissions account first to create your Net-ID.

If you are waiting to accept your offer of admission, you can still apply for scholarships. Use the admissions account you created when you applied to Iowa State or registered for a campus visit.


All students should complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) to qualify for institutional and federal financial aid. We recommend you complete your FAFSA by the priority deadline of February 29, 2024 to be considered for priority financial aid.

Applying for financial aid

Remember to complete the General and College of Liberal Arts and Sciences sections to be considered for scholarships. Once you have done this, you can explore any other scholarship opportunities that OneApp may recommend.
