Criteria For Selection
The awarding of grants will be based on recommendations of the Undergraduate
Grant Program Committee whose membership consists of Hutton Honors
members from various departments and schools on the Bloomington campus. The
following general criteria are used in evaluation: 1) Promise of a productive
learning experience as indicated by intellectual capacity reflected in grades
and faculty opinions, motivation, and the specific background and academic
preparation for the award sought; 2) Significance of the activity in developing
the student's present capabilities and future promise; 3) Feasibility, clarity,
and quality of the proposal; and 4) Equitable distribution of grants among
departments and programs.
Summary/Evaluation Of Grants
After the grant-funded activities conclude, each
student who has been awarded a grant is required to submit a written summary and
evaluation of his/her experience. Students awarded a
research or creative activity grant are required

experience. We expect recipients of internship awards to evaluate
those activities. HIEP awardees must describe a significant aspect of

deadline of the grant period that immediately follows the funded

**NOTE**: If you filed the FAFSA and are receiving financial aid (for example: Direct Loans, Pell Promise grants, 21st Century Scholars Covenant),
and you receive one of the Hutton Honors College's grants for scholarships, your award from the Hutton Honors College may not be paid-out in
the form of cash funds (i.e., as money paid into your Bursar account), but instead, may be used by IU's Office of Student Financial Assistance
(OSFA) to reduce your student/parent loan burden or reduce your federal/state grant by the amount awarded to you by the HHC. To learn how your HHC
award may impact your financial aid, please contact OSFA at email@example.com.
