How to Apply

  1. Apply to IU, listing business as your intended major.
  2. Complete the Selective Scholarship Application when the Office of Scholarships provides it to you.
  3. Gain direct admission to Kelley either automatically or through a review request.

The Kelley Dean’s Council Scholarship provides:

  • A dedicated academic advisor from the Office of Diversity Initiatives
  • A supportive network of fellow scholars to help you transition from high school to college
  • Academic support through study tables, tutoring, seminars, and other resources
  • Exclusive opportunities for you to connect with the dean and Dean’s Council members
  • A retreat, social events, and opportunities for you to network with corporate recruiters
My favorite thing about Kelley is the environment of achievement; it always pushes me to work harder. I have so many opportunities for recruitment because businesses are drawn to Kelley’s reputation of excellence.Claudia Loman, BS’20, Kelley Dean’s Council Scholar
