High school counselors: We know it can be overwhelming to keep track of all the dates, deadlines, and requirements for admissions and scholarships processes. The IU Office of Scholarships wants to provide you with everything you need to give the best guidance to your students as they seek to join the family of Hoosier Scholars. We welcome thousands of amazing students to Indiana University each fall, and we couldn’t do it without your hard work and support. Thank you!

Serving as a student recommender
Admitted high school seniors who complete the Selective Scholarship Application (SSA) must submit recommendation letters. Students request those letters during the process of completing the SSA. To ensure that their request reaches you, please ask your IT representative to whitelist all email extensions ending in the following: @indiana.edu, @iu.edu, and @academicworks.com.
If your high school senior indicates that they have submitted the SSA, and you have not received notification from Indiana University, please contact the Office of Scholarships at email@example.com.
