Per university guidelines, O’Neill uses FASFA information from the current academic year (2022–23) to determine eligibility for scholarships that list financial need as a criteria.
For more information on how FAFSA is used to determine eligibility for need-based awards, visit Student Central.
The receipt of a fellowship may result in the reduction or repayment of need-based financial assistance previously awarded to the student by Indiana University.
In accordance with federal regulations, the Office of Student Financial Assistance is required to monitor whether a student’s total financial assistance remains within their financial need-based eligibility.
Similar practices are followed with some institutional need-based grants. Whenever possible, self-help awards (loans and Federal Work-Study) are reduced before federal or institutional gift-aid.
