OVPDEMA Scholar Programs

Scholar Programs for Underrepresented and Minority Students

Our goal at OVPDEMA is to provide students with the academic support, financial resources, and community enrichment programs they need to explore their full potential and prepare for success at Indiana University, in our communities, and beyond.

Having the Groups Scholars Program there to support me made IU feel like a home away from home.
