75th Anniversary

Global Citizen Scholarship

We've created a new scholarship in honor of our anniversary, called the 75th Anniversary Global Citizen Scholarship. We'll award three scholarships of $7,500 each.

How to apply

  1. Make your video
  2. Upload it to Box or Google Drive (Important: make sure anyone with the link can access the video)
  3. Complete the form in Atlas (include the URL for your video)

The objective is to share your intercultural success story in a 2-3 minute video. We want your examples of positive interactions with people from other cultures.

Be creative! We have developed the following guiding questions to get you started, but we'd prefer if you did more than just sit in front of the camera and answer the questions.

  • How has studying internationally changed you or your perspective?
  • How have you shared your culture with others at IU?
  • What have you learned about other cultures?

Video creation tips

We're not looking for a professionally-developed video. Use the tools you already have, like your phone or tablet. Most phones/tablets have video editing software freely available. Or, use a free online program like Adobe Spark. With this type of program, you can add multiple photos/videos, nice transitions, and text with little effort.

Example video idea for someone who has participated in IU World's Fare:

Put some photos and videos from the event into your program of choice. Record a short introduction or ending that discusses your story and how you shared your culture with people at World's Fare.

Deadline to apply

The application deadline for this scholarship was October 14, 2018.

We'll notify winners and present them with the award at a formal event in November.


All current IU Bloomington international students (undergraduate and graduate) in valid status are eligible to apply.


We will evaluate your video using these criteria:

  • Clarity of message
  • Style
  • Involvement in campus/community
  • Adherence to the theme
  • Quality of film/editing
  • Strength of message
  • Uniqueness
