Stay connected to the Wells Scholars Program

Wells Scholars alumni can be found throughout the United States and abroad. As you move through your career, travel the world, embrace exciting opportunities, and make a difference in your community, we trust you'll keep the Wells Scholars Program and alumni community close by.

With more than 600 alums, abundant opportunities exist for networking, mentoring, and connecting with one another. Please consider the following ways to stay engaged with the Program.

Update your alumni record

Help us stay in touch with you! The Wells Scholars Program sends periodic updates and student stories to keep you in the loop.

Get social with the Wells Scholars Program

Make a gift

Annually, our goal is to increase the number of Wells Scholars alumni contributing to the program and grow the amount of gifts to cover the full cost of the program (when combined with its endowment income). Nearly 40% of alums and close to 50% of our current Scholars make a contribution to the Program.

Our long-term goal is for the program to be annually sustainable, ensuring current Scholars are given the same experiences that shaped our alumni's paths in life.

Every gift matters, and combined alumni giving makes a significant difference for the program.

Become a leadership donor through the HBW Giving Society

Wells Scholars alumni continue to contribute broadly across their fields and communities. Many alums chose to contribute financially to the Wells Scholars Program as an effort to pass along the culture of philanthropy they received while at IU to today's students. Leadership alumni gifts are recognized through the HBW Society.
