Nile C. Kinnick Scholarship – Est. 1997

Now in its 26th year, the Nile C. Kinnick Scholarship aims to reward male students 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. This scholarship is intended to reward well-rounded individuals who embody the values of Nile: discipline, hard work, and strong morals. In 2022, we will be awarding up to $20,000 in scholarships. If you know someone who is a worthy candidate and meets the criteria, please encourage them to apply!
