Like grants, scholarship awards do not require repayment.

Institutional Scholarships

These IRSC scholarships may be awarded to students based on academic achievement, athletic abilities, talent and financial need. Students must apply for admission and file a FAFSA to be considered for this type of aid.

Scholarship applications are available every October. Review the types of scholarships below and the application process for each type of scholarship. Scholarship recipients will receive an email through RiverMail with instructions on how to view their awards online. Make sure your RiverMail account is activated.







Transfer Scholarships

Indian River State College students who have recently graduated, or are nearing graduation, and who will be continuing their education either in the IRSC Baccalaureate programs or at another university, are encouraged to apply for transfer scholarships.











Other Scholarships

Indian River State College students are additionally encouraged to apply for external scholarships, including those listed below.









Satisfactory Academic Progress

Scholarship recipients must complete the required credit hours each semester and must complete each semester with the required grade point average as defined by the individual scholarship. If a student’s program requires less than full-time enrollment (i.e. Nursing, Health Science) or it is the student’s last semester, the scholarship recipient can request to be considered for a part-time award. These situations are handled by the Financial Aid Office on a case-by-case basis.
