More Info

Created in 1968 to increase college attendance among first-generation, minority, and low-income students underrepresented at Indiana University, the Groups Scholars Program provides academic, financial, and social support to help students attain a bachelor's degree at Indiana University. This year the focus is on making additional technology available to our students.

In today's virtual learning environment, technology needs and accessibility have now, more than ever, become a necessity for a student to reach academic success. In part, Groups Scholars are accepted based on their limited family incomes, so we know students and their families have limited financial opportunities to obtain and access the tools and technology required to perform daily coursework successfully.

In 2019, we learned that some students were failing in their courses simply because they could not afford the equipment necessary to succeed in their classes. One student told us, "It was extremely difficult not having a computer for the first part of the Summer Experience Program. I was in a computing class, and I did not have a personal laptop to work on an assignment. Using a laptop during class time was essential, and I was forced to memorize everything and apply the skills later."

You can make a difference today by giving $10, $25, or $50 to support the Groups Scholars Program in its current goal of providing students with the needed technology.
