Applications are now being accepted for the 2004-2005 scholarships for IU students who are children of IU Alumni Association members. Twenty $1,000 scholarships will be awarded this year. At this time only one application from IU Northwest has been received.
Known as IU Alumni Association Scholars, the scholarship program is in its 10th year of providing support to IU students who are children of IU Alumni Association members.
One scholarship will be designated for a qualifying student from each of IUís eight campuses. The remainder will be awarded to students on an at-large basis. If there are no applicants from a particular campus or the applicants do not meet the criteria, that campusís scholarship will be added to the at-large scholarship pool. Preference will be given to those who have not received a scholarship in prior years.
The scholarships will be awarded on the basis of financial need and academic achievement as determined by the IU Office of Student Financial Assistance. Financial need will be determined from the information provided by the student and his/her parent(s) on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) forms. The FAFSA information must be released by the family to Indiana University. FAFSA forms are available at high schools, financial aid offices, and online at the U.S. Department of Education's web site.
Our scholarship program is funded by revenue received from the IU Collegiate License Plate Program. In 2002, 24,000 plates were sold, making the IU plate the most popular collegiate plate in Indiana.
Applications must be returned by April 2, 2004.
