The association plans to give 33 scholarships statewide, with at least two recipients at each of the eight IU campuses.
"We are proud the IU Alumni Association offers support to children of its members," said Penny Lee, vice chancellor for public affairs and advancement. "We want to make attending Indiana University a family tradition. IU Kokomo offers a world-class university experience, and our students graduate with less debt of any IU regional campus. This scholarship contributes to that achievement."
Eligible students can obtain a 2012 scholarship application online at alumni.indiana.edu/students/scholarships/iuaa.html. Applications will be accepted now through March 30, and scholarship recipients will be notified by May 11.
An applicant must be the son or daughter of an IU Alumni Association member and a full-time undergraduate student attending any IU campus.
The scholarships will be awarded on the basis of financial need and academic achievement as determined by the Office of Student Enrollment Services. Preference will be given to students who have not received a scholarship in prior years.
The IUAA Scholars program has provided $311,000 of support to IU students in 18 years.
Revenue from the IU Collegiate License Plate Program funds this scholarship program. In 2011, more than 48,000 plates were issued, making the IU plate the most popular specialty plate in Indiana.
