Alumni Referral Grant

As an AIU alumnus, you've not only gained the knowledge you need to move forward, you've made important connections, received lots of support and inspired friends and family along the way. After all, it’s not just what you know; it's who you know.

Now here's your chance to be more than an inspiration – you could be the person who helps open the door of opportunity for a friend, family member or co-worker by referring them to AIU through our It's Who U Know Referral Program. As an alumnus, if you refer a new student to AIU, that student can receive the $1,000 Alumni Referral Grant toward their education in your name (once all conditions have been met). As the referring alumnus, you’ll also receive a custom AIU padfolio.

All recognition pieces will be given to the referring alumnus after the student has successfully completed the first quarter of enrollment and achieved initial eligibility for the grant.

Complete the form below to refer a friend to AIU and help open the door of opportunity today.
