Academic advising

Whether pursuing internships or registering for classes, IUPUI School of Science students can turn to their advisors for help. Advisors refer students to appropriate on- and off-campus resources, assist in academic planning, and provide career development support.

New students are assigned an advisor upon admission to IUPUI and the School of Science. 

Advising Appointments

Each department is staffed by professional advisors who are available to meet with you for individualized advising appointments. To schedule and appointment with your advisor click the link below.

Financial aid and scholarships

Financial aid

IUPUI awards more than $70 million in financial aid to qualified students each year. The Office of Student Financial Aid Services administers the programs that provide financial aid. Student eligibility is determined after our receipt of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid for the appropriate aid year.

Undergraduate scholarships

In addition to admission-based scholarships, scholarships are available to support research, diversity, community service, and international study for IUPUI students.

For a complete list of scholarships available to IUPUI students, check IU's scholarship system for scholarships for which you may be recommended. It quickly sorts through hundreds of scholarships and identifies which ones you are eligible for based on the information you enter about yourself.

Graduate funding opportunities

Full-time thesis M.S. and Ph.D. students are eligible for a variety of university and department support packages. Students may receive stipends through teaching assistantships, research assistantships, and fellowships. Students with fellowships and assistantships are also eligible for health insurance.

In addition to stipend support, full-time students may receive fee remission that pays most of the tuition cost.

The School of Science Graduate Student Council and the IUPUI Graduate Office both offer travel awards and fellowships to help cover the cost of national conference travel expenses.

Support packages vary by department. For details, please contact your department of interest.

The IUPUI Urban Educators GK-12 Program (Graduate Teaching Fellows in K-12 Education Program), funded by the National Science Foundation, provides competitive fellowships ($30,000/year) for graduate students in the IUPUI School of Science and the IU School of Medicine. GK-12 Fellows are research graduate students who are working on either an M.S. or a Ph.D. degree, and who dedicate 15 hours per week in nearby school classrooms. The GK-12 fellows apply their university graduate research projects to classrooms and outdoor learning labs, offering teachers and students in grades 6-12 access to current and relevant science concepts.

Undergraduate research

Participating in undergraduate research is an excellent way for students to challenge themselves, build relationships with senior scientists, and add depth to their university experience.

Scientific research requires not only evidence and logic, but also honesty, creativity, patience, and openness to new ideas. The problem-solving and reasoning skills you develop, as well as an increased understanding of science, will provide a great foundation for approaching any type of work and engaging your community. Plus, these are qualities and skills valued by many employers and graduate and professional school admission officers.
