$5M Gift to Support Students Interested Social Impact

Kelley students annually help build a Habitat home for a local family














A new fellowship program at the Indiana University Kelley School of Business will support a growing number of undergraduate students who combine business interests with community service and social entrepreneurship.

The fellowship program will be established with a $5 million gift from a Kelley alumnus and his wife, who wish to remain anonymous.

Students in the program will receive fellowships that will provide for tuition and fees, room and board, books, and a semester abroad, minus any other fellowships/scholarships the students receive from other sources.

The fellowships will be renewable if students remain in good academic standing as business majors, with a minimum grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. Only students from Indiana will be eligible.

Unlike other fellowship/scholarship programs at Kelley, these students will be required to participate in service opportunities, particularly those offered by the Kelley Institute for Social Impact.
