All General Studies program majors who meet the criteria are considered for the scholarship and merit awards. Scholarships are awarded based on a student's cumulative grade point average and number of IU credit hours. Merit awards are given based on a student's grade point average for the year immediately preceding the award year. A student must have been on the Dean's List for both the fall and spring semester of the year immediately preceding the award year to be eligible for the scholarship or merit awards.
The General Studies Scholarship Committee determines the annual awards based on student qualifications and available funds.
