Indiana University holds all of its students in high esteem, but it takes an added measure of pride in those who demonstrate sustained academic excellence over time. Maintaining a high level of achievement in the classroom and in research represents the kind of dedication, diligence, and determination that are worthy of special commendation. We confer upon our most academically distinguished undergraduates the designation of Founders Scholar, and we honor them at an annual event, the IU Bloomington Honors Convocation. The Honors Convocation is one of the traditional activities that mark Founders Day, the annual celebration of IU's founding in 1820.
The 2015 Honors Convocation will be held on Sunday, April 12, at 2:00 p.m. in the IU Auditorium.
