GOAL #1: SUPPORT STUDENT SUCCESS
Our region needs professionals who can contribute to the
medical community, enrich the education of our youth,
foster a vibrant culture, and grow our economy. While
our students have the ambition and commitment to go
after these goals, they often lack the financial means.
Scholarship support can give deserving individuals the
chance to achieve a world-class education and pursue
their dreams, bettering their own lives and those in the
communities we hold most dear.
More than 80 percent of our graduates remain in the area.
When they can earn a degree at IU Southeast without the
burden of overwhelming debt, they can focus on growing
their own lives and their professional impact.
FOSTERING THOSE WHO WILL ADVANCE
Rich and Dawn Boling met here at IU Southeast. Rich,
a first-generation college graduate, is now a successful
communications executive and a Distinguished Alumni
Service Award winner. Dawn teaches at Highland Hills,
Indiana’s largest middle school, and was recently a top-10
finalist for Teacher of the Year in the state.
The Bolings represent just two examples of the many
alumni who draw on their IU degrees as they work
to elevate our local towns and cities. You can help us
give more people like them the chance to receive a
life-changing education—something they otherwise
couldn’t afford. Your gift toward student scholarships
will support the next generation of community leaders,
giving them access to premier teachers, researchers, and
opportunities—and setting them on the path to improve
“At IU Southeast, you get the
feeling that you can do anything.”
