Bicentennial Scholarships

Scholarships enhancing enrollment goals

All campuses should develop a Bicentennial Scholarship that enhances enrollment goals for that campus.

For example, in 2016, the IU Bloomington campus created the Indiana County Bicentennial Scholarship. This scholarship provides a need-based scholarship opportunity for students from select counties across the state of Indiana.

Funds have been re-allocated from existing scholarships to develop this program. It is designed to increase enrollment from specific Indiana counties; particularly those counties not already represented at IU.

Eligibility for the program is based on financial need and Indiana county of residence. Students admitted for the fall of 2016 were the first to be considered for the Indiana County Bicentennial Scholarship.

We encourage each campus to develop a Bicentennial Scholarship program.
