Indiana State University has awarded outstanding students the President’s Scholarship, the university’s most prestigious merit scholarship for incoming freshmen.

The scholarship covers the students’ full in-state tuition and on-campus housing. It is offered to incoming first-year students who demonstrate excellent academic performance in high school and during an on-campus interview. Over four years, this scholarship is worth about $80,000.

 “With over 250 students selected to participate in this year’s interview day events, we saw students travel from the Midwest and beyond to interview for this prestigious award,” said Kelly A.
