IV. FINANCIAL AID

This is the only form necessary to apply for SPEA merit-based aid. Priority consideration for funding is given to students who submit a completed application file with all supporting documents by February 1.

Would you like to be considered for SPEA merit-based financial aid? Yes    No

Would you like to be considered for the SPEA Service Corps? Yes    No
To be eligible for Service Corps, you must submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by March 10th and qualify for federal work-study funding and be willing to submit to a background check.

Are you currently an applicant or a nominee for a fellowship from an organization or agency other
than a university? Yes    No
If yes, which fellowship?     

Are you a first generation college graduate (neither parent has achieved baccalaureate degree)? Yes    No

In accordance with the national agreement developed through the Council of Graduate Schools, which states that "an offer by an institution after April 15 is conditional on presentation by the student of the written release from any previously accepted offer," I agree that if I accept a fellowship, scholarship, or assistantship from Indiana University, the acceptance becomes binding after April 15 and will preclude the later acceptance of a stipend offer for the following academic year from any other institution unless I first obtain a written release from the graduate advisor of the relevant degree program of Indiana University.

The resolution of the Council of Graduate Schools, for which 373 universities have indicated support, including Indiana University, also states: "Students are under no obligation to respond to offers of financial support prior to April 15; earlier deadlines for acceptance of such offers violate the intent of this resolution."
