For Incoming Students

The O’Neill School offers 300+ scholarship opportunities to our incoming students

College is an investment, but we feel strongly that it should also be affordable. To help, we offer a variety of scholarships for motivated incoming students.

To be eligible for these scholarships, you must have been offered direct admission into O’Neill. You will automatically be considered using either your Selective Scholarship Application or your application to O’Neill. O’Neill is looking for students that want to be leaders in our school and community, and to be involved in the many opportunities our school has to offer.

O’Neill is looking for strong leaders who will work toward improving the lives of others and have an impact on the world around them. Students that most exemplify this spirit will be considered for the Academic Leadership Award, our largest scholarship. Students who receive this award will be given $4,000 per year during their four years in O’Neill , and will be some of the most distinguished students in the school.

The Civic Leaders Center (CLC), a living learning community, is a staple of the O’Neill experience. Some of the most engaged students in O’Neill will live here during their first year at IU. The Civic Scholars Award, given to O’Neill ’s highest achieving students, many of which come from diverse backgrounds, will get the chance to join this unique community.

The Boch Family Scholarship provides undergraduate scholarships for incoming freshmen in the O'Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs who have a record of academic excellence and financial need. Student scholarship recipients will receive $7,000 per year for up to four years.

Once you are a current O’Neill student, a number of additional scholarship opportunities will become available to you.
