Students with unmet financial need are eligible to live in the Residence Scholars Community. Residence Scholars receive a housing scholarship which covers 45% of the room cost for the academic year. Students living in the community are provided opportunities to build community, engage in campus activities, and develop leadership skills. Students in the community may expect to:
- Be involved in leadership development opportunities such as the student leadership council that plans and executes programming for all residents, community service, and social events
- Maintain a 2.5 semester and cumulative GPA
- Be eligible for an additional scholarship provided by alumni from the community. The scholarship is awarded in spring semester to a student with a minimum 3.0 GPA with preference given to a student from Indiana
- Complete a course on IU Canvas that will orient students to the campus, community, and college life itself in exchange for a certificate of completion and other incentives
Please note: Students applying for the Residence Scholars Community should have unmet or demonstrated financial need according to the Office of Student Financial Assistance. The former Co-operative Housing Community has been discontinued and is now incorporated into the Residence Scholars Community.
