BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business acclaimed undergraduate program continues to attract many of the top students from around the country, including the 30 freshmen who were selected this fall as William R. Fry Scholars.
Entering freshmen who applied to IU and were directly admitted to the Kelley School were eligible. 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 Fry Scholars program is made possible through a $15 million gift in 2008 from the late William R. Fry, a Kelley alumnus. The gift and resulting program are helping the Kelley School pursue a major initiative toward more inclusiveness and increased enrollment of underrepresented minorities.
