Commitment to Diversity

Recruitment Visits

If you’ve been offered a recruitment fellowship and you’re thinking about visiting IU Bloomington, you may be eligible for travel reimbursement through one of our diversity recruitment programs. The University Graduate School funds recruitment visits for select underrepresented minority applicants to help carry out our commitment to a building a diverse student body.

To apply for a reimbursement, your department must submit a Request for a Student Recruitment Visit form accompanied by a copy of your fellowship offer letter.

You and your department are responsible for coordinating the visit.

As soon as you are admitted, contact your department or school to schedule your visit.

Getting You into IU

Getting You into IU (GU2IU) is a multi-day recruitment program that brings underrepresented and minority prospective Ph.D. and M.F.A. applicants to Indiana University Bloomington to learn about the programs they are interested in applying and to get a first hand view of the campus and community. IU pays all the costs of the visit, including lodging, transportation, meals, and travel to and from the airport.

The 2014 Getting You into IU program takes place October 12–14, 2014. Apply by the September 5 deadline. You’ll be notified of whether you are accepted by September 19, and we’ll ask for you to respond with your decision by September 22.

The program is open to underrepresented and minority undergraduate seniors and master’s students interested in applying to specific Ph.D. and M.F.A programs.
