American College Testing (ACT) Scholar Program

In collaboration with ACT, the University of Iowa Graduate College is pleased to promote multiculturalism and inclusion through the ACT Scholars Program.

Through the generous support of the ACT Foundation, the ACT Scholars Program offers an academic year stipend ($23,000 plus full resident–rate tuition (“ACT Scholarship”) to qualified students pursuing graduate degrees full time at the University of Iowa in programs of study generally pertinent to ACT’s business model.

Priority will be given to applicants who are U. S. Citizens or Permanent Residents and will increase diversity and multicultural perspectives in areas relevant to ACT’s interest and strategic goals. In that respect, priority is given to students from historically underrepresented populations, including African-Americans, Latinos, and Native American applicants. Applications are due March 15, 2021. Please see Application Requirements for further details
