High school student nomination deadlines
Nomination information is emailed to all eligible high schools. Nominating high schools that have not received their materials by mid-August should contact the Wells Scholars Program immediately to request the information be resent.
Schools not already on our list should contact the Wells Scholars Program immediately for information on how to nominate their students.
Students who are not selected by their schools or who otherwise wish to be nominated should follow the instructions on our Domestic High School Senior Nomination Process page.
Deadline for receipt of fully completed electronic nominations and supplementary materials, including letters of recommendation and student essays. Complete nominations that include all required items must be submitted through our online portal.
To be eligible for other opportunities at IU Bloomington, students should apply for admission to IU Bloomington as soon as possible and no later than November 1. For additional information, including IU deadlines, visit the sites for the Office of Admissions and Office of Scholarships.
Approximately 45 finalists are selected for interviews. All nominees are notified of their status via email.
Updated 10/21/21: Out of an abundance of caution, WSP has made the difficult decision to hold virtual interviews again this year. Finalists will receive further information closer to December. We also plan to facilitate on-campus experiences for selected scholarship recipients throughout the spring semester.
Around 18 Wells Scholars will be selected from the finalist group, and each finalist will receive notification of their status.
This is the deadline for students to accept or decline the offer of a place in the Wells Scholars Program.
New student advising and registration at IU Bloomington usually takes place in June. Incoming Scholars should watch their IU email and visit the First Year Experience website for more information on how to register and important dates and deadlines.
A Welcome Reception for new Wells Scholars will be held during Welcome Week.
