Nile C. Kinnick Scholarship – Est. 1997

Now in its 23rd year, the Nile C. Kinnick scholarship aims to reward men with outstanding high school careers entering their first year at the University of Iowa. The scholarship is named for Nile Kinnick, Iowa’s lone Heisman trophy winner and a brother of Phi Kappa Psi. Nile was known as a well rounded individual and this is who the scholarship is intended to reward. In 2019, we will be awarding a total of $15,000 in scholarships. If you know someone who is a worthy candidate and meets the criteria, please encourage them to apply!
