Indiana University officials say funding for financial aid continues to cover student needs.

Student Trustee Abbey Stemler believes that the amount of financial support given to Indiana University students will continue to rise despite record high enrollment. That was one of the points of discussion at today’s I-U Board of Trustees meeting. Stemler says the larger the university, the more opportunities to give.

“We are committed to having a strong and capable student body and by providing them with the means to get to school and to excel and not have to, you know, have a second or third job in order to pay their tuition bills.” Stemler said, “Allows them to work on their studies and contribute to the university.”

Director of Financial Aid James Kennedy says there are a number of sources for financial aid. However, he says I-U is putting more and more of their own funds into helping students attend this university.


“One of the things we’re really trying to address is the affordability issue.” Kennedy notes. ” To making sure that…  you know…  especially for Indiana students, if they come here, they can afford to come and they have the right funding to make sure that they can afford it. ”

Kennedy says the school is looking to provide more options to students. There are currently more than 104,000 students enrolled statewide at Indiana University campuses.
