Indiana University is one of a few public universities in the United States that offers merit-based awards to international freshmen.
The IU Global Engagement Scholarship is awarded to incoming freshman international students of the highest academic quality. Academic performance is assessed through information provided in the IU Admissions application, including SAT/ACT scores (if applicable*) and high school transcript information. No additional scholarship application is needed. Only test scores received directly from the testing agency will be considered for scholarship and admission processes.
*Admission to IU is now test-optional. To find out if this is the right path for you, learn more about our test-optional admissions policy.
