The Chancellor's Medallion Dinner

Over the past decade, the Chancellor's Medallion Dinner has evolved into one of Southern Indiana's premier civic events—and a major source of scholarship funding for outstanding Indiana University Southeast students. This year’s event will be held Saturday, April 1, 2017 at Horseshoe Southern Indiana.

The Chancellor's Medallion Award

The Chancellor's Medallion is the highest honor presented by the Chancellor of IU Southeast. To date, 45 of these awards have been presented. Judy Hess, director of community relations at Horseshoe Southern Indiana, and Ron Grooms, Indiana state senator, will be presented with the Chancellor's Medallion at the 2017 event. Hundreds of Southern Indiana's and greater Louisville's top business, civic and educational leaders are expected to attend this year's Medallion Dinner to honor these two distinguished community members.

The Chancellor's Medallion Scholarship

The Chancellor's Medallion Scholarship is awarded each year to outstanding juniors and seniors who demonstrate academic achievement, leadership and perseverance both at IU Southeast and in the community. To qualify for the scholarship, students must be enrolled full-time and maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.0. Students are selected for this prestigious award based on extra-curricular and civic activities and leadership, letters of recommendation, an essay and other special accomplishments.
