It is important to note that eligibility for financial aid is contingent upon a student maintaining satisfactory academic progress, as defined by the respective degree program. It is the responsibility of each student to understand and adhere to these standards of performance.


The Director's Scholarship

IHN offers a small needs-based IHN Director's Scholarship. Needs are assessed based on past federal financial support. To be considered for the scholarship, interested applicants should complete a FAFSA form and list their social security number on their application so the FAFSA can be matched with the application. No additional documentation is needed.

Admitted applicants are reviewed for scholarship consideration on May 15th each year. Applications submitted after May 15th may be considered for a scholarship if remaining funds are available.

Applicants receiving past financial support that is not documented within the federal financial aid system should submit a note to IHN at to be considered for a scholarship award.  

Currently, our IHN Director's Scholarship is for domestic students only.
