Before you apply to the IUPUI Honors College, you must apply to IUPUI. Incoming freshmen interested in admission to the IUPUI Honors College must meet the criteria and be selected for one of our four competitive scholarships. The scholarship application for incoming freshmen is open each year from early September through mid-November.
The IUPUI Honors College offers high-achieving incoming freshmen the opportunity to apply to four competitive scholarship programs.
Our scholarship recipients are selected based on a variety of factors: the strength of academic curriculum in high school, standardized test results, grade trends, and qualities specified in each scholarship program.
Students must apply online and submit an essay. The Bepko Scholars and Fellows Program, the Adam W. Herbert Presidential Scholars Program, and the Plater International Scholars Program also require a scholarship resume and two letters of recommendation. Semi-finalists for these three scholarship programs will complete an interview as the final step of the application process
