Merit Awards

What can I expect for merit money with a child who has well above a 4.0, will have 35 AP credits when starting and has a 35 ACT? Will Iowa State provide more than the “grid” $8K a year for a student coming from WI? He will be double majoring in Mechanical Engineering and Physics.

He will definitely get more than the 8K that is advertised. He is going to qualify for Engineering Scholarship as well! I am not sure how much money that scholarship is since it keeps changing, but that should definitely help as well!
Just For Reference, I had a 1510 SAT and around a 4.3 GPA but didn’t have that many AP courses. I got a total Scholarship of around 15k.
