The Rolla M. Malpas Trust Scholarship is available to outstanding Indiana students who have substantial eligibility for financial assistance. Need-based eligibility is determined by submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The Malpas Scholarship will meet full demonstrated financial need with grant assistance. With the exception of a University Merit Scholarship (awarded at the time of admission), Malpas Scholars are not eligible to receive assistance from any other source, may not take loans and scholarships from other sources, participate in work study or hold a job during the academic school year.
