Honors and Scholarships
IU Journalism recognizes and rewards the academic and professional accomplishments of its majors with a program of awards and scholarships.
IU Journalism places its outstanding students on the Dean’s List each semester, based on their grade point average for that semester. In addition, the program annually awards about $200,000 in scholarships, ranging in value from $500 to $8,000, to its majors. The application process begins in the fall semester and the application deadline is in mid-January. Applicants are selected for these scholarships by a faculty-student committee. The program announces the awards at an annual ceremony for students and parents in the spring.
