1 These figures include IU students who were enrolled at fall, spring or summer census; enrolled for the fall, spring or summer as of a final-year snapshot; or received an IU degree between September 1 and August 31 of the aid year.  All figures include both degree-seeking and non-degree students with gift aid.
2 "Other" state undergraduate scholarships include Mitch Daniels Scholarships, Nursing Scholarships, scholarships for minority and special education teachers, and scholarships for occupational and physical therapy students.
3 "Other" state gift aid includes CVO awards for children of veterans and public safety officers, and funding for active Indiana National Guard members.
4 "Other" federal and IU gift aid includes primarily fee remissions.  However, fee remits that are associated with a particular scholarship program are included under scholarships above.
5  Undergraduate need-based grants generally meet a portion of a student's unmet financial need and may be reduced if a student receives other aid.  These are generally funded from IU general funds or other funding sources like royalties.  Examples include the IUPUI 21st Century Scholars Pledge Grant and Student Support Services Grant.  In contrast, undergraduate scholarships generally have a fixed award amount and may be funded from endowed funds, as well as other IU sources.
6 Due to the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA), most federal veterans education benefits are no longer entered on students' records, effective fall 2009.  As a result, figures for 2009-10 and subsequent years are not comparable with data reported for previous years.
7 The federal guidelines providing increased annual "year-round " Pell Grant funds to students ended at the end of 2010-11.
