Life as a Scholar

Herbert Presidential Scholars are an exceptional group of talented and diverse young men and women. To ensure students make the most of their education at IU, the program provides scholars with a number of academic and career resources designed to support, enrich, and educate. We encourage students to take advantage of these resources and all of the opportunities available.  Information on benefit details, programs, and networking opportunities can be accessed via the scholar student portal.
