Nomination scholarships are based on a nomination process either to receive the award, or to be eligible to apply.

Adam W. Herbert Presidential Scholars Program

The Adam W. Herbert Presidential Scholars Program recognizes a select number of Indiana resident students who are the top achievers of the incoming freshman class. The award includes a scholarship which is renewable for four years (eight semesters) of study at IU, a laptop computer, and funding for a study abroad program. Recipients are selected by a committee representing the Office of the President and must maintain a minimum GPA. No separate application is necessary.  Preference is given to students who have applied for admission to IU by the November 1 scholarship deadline.  For more information on the Adam W.

Wells Scholars Program

The Wells Scholars Program awards scholarships that provide tuition, academic fees, a living-expenses stipend, a summer experience grant, and support for overseas study to 18-22 freshmen who have shown exceptional academic accomplishment and promise, fine character and leadership, significant involvement in extracurricular activities, concern for their communities, and interest in the larger world. All Indiana high schools and selected out-of state high schools may nominate up to two seniors each year for consideration for the scholarship.  Students who do not attend high schools eligible to nominate can be considered for nomination by the Office of Admissions.  The scholarship is renewable for a total of up to four years of undergraduate study at IU Bloomington if the student maintains a 3.4 GPA and meets additional requirements.  Note: This scholarship cannot be combined with other IU awards, except for the IU National Scholar Program Scholarships.
