BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business has announced its Dean’s Council Scholars for 2019-20.
Chosen from among all entering freshmen who applied to IU and were directly admitted to the Kelley School, 16 incoming freshmen are Dean’s Council Scholars. Preference is given to students who are traditionally underrepresented in the field of business.
Students receive funding toward standard tuition and fees. They also receive support in the form of an advisor and a Kelley student mentor during their time at IU. They also have the option of residing in the Kelley Living Learning Center, a residential program that focuses on personal, academic and professional development. Each program has its unique events.
The Dean’s Council Scholarship was created in 2015 out of a shared aspiration of the Kelley School’s dean and Dean’s Council to pool their philanthropic resources to sustain and enhance the school’s diversity efforts, which includes students from all different economic backgrounds as well as students from diverse cultural backgrounds.
The Kelley Dean’s Council is composed of over 150 CEOs, vice presidents and business leaders who represent all ranges of industry. It advises on institutional goals, school strategies, and curricula. The council is also actively involved with long-term goal planning for the school and offers input on research, fundraising and the creation of new programs.
