"The Groups Scholars Program is an outstanding program that not only provides students with academic and financial support but it gives students a sense of belonging and community."
The Groups Scholars Program provides specially selected students with information, support, and guidance to help them excel in the classroom and beyond. We are here every step of the way--from the time they complete their application to attend IU until they accept their diploma on graduation day.
Eligible students are the first in their family to attend college with limited financial resources from all racial and economic backgrounds.
Groups was established in 1968 to address low college attendance rates among first-generation, low-income, and physically challenged students at Indiana University. Funded by the Higher Education Act of 1965, and supported by the University's strong commitment of additional resources and services, Groups admits more than 200 students each year and has an alumni roster of close to 11,000. The program is now fully funded by Indiana Unviersity.
