For Incoming Students

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.

If you are from Indiana, you know a thing or two about Hoosier hospitality. It’s what makes our state such a great place to live. Hoosiers help others in need, and that is what the Indiana Leadership Award is all about. Indiana Leaders, some of the highest achieving students coming to IU and O'Neill from the state of Indiana, will not only received $2,500 per year for the next four years, but will also be granted priority admission into O'Neill’s Indiana Leadership Program, a program built on experimental learning through service.

All of O'Neill’s directly admitted students will be reviewed for the O'Neill Achievement Award. This scholarship is awarded based on a student’s admission application to O'Neill, not the Selective Scholarship Application. Students that show a strong academic record and desire to engage in the opportunities that O'Neill has to offer will be considered strongly for the award.
