Register for IU Kokomo Alumni Hall of Fame Scholarship Gala


As an alumnus, parent or friend of IU Kokomo, you recognize the importance of a quality education. A college education prepares individuals to be leaders in their communities and beyond. What you might not see is that many of our students are one financial setback from not pursuing that valuable collegiate education. Many of our students are only able to earn their IU degrees because of the generous benefactors who choose to support students through their generous gifts of time, talent, and treasures. IU Kokomo is able to provide a “private education at a public-school cost” because our donors make it so.

If you value higher education and believe strongly in supporting our community, Indiana University Kokomo welcomes your partnership in these efforts and encourage you to make a gift today that will have a positive impact on both.

If you have questions about how you can make an impact on our students, campus, and community please feel free to contact us, we are happy to answer any questions you might have. For more than seventy years, we've been an educational stronghold for north central Indiana, have established ourselves as a pacesetter for academic freedom, tolerance, and academic exchange, locally and globally. And we've built a culture where students are inspired to fulfill their promise, to become citizens of the world, and to lead by example.

for all

On January 1, 2012, Indiana University began its first comprehensive university-wide campaign in over twenty years. This campaign, FOR ALL: The Indiana University Bicentennial Campaign, seeks to generate $3 billion for a variety of endeavors such as:

  • Enhancing student support and success
  • Creating the next generation of leaders
  • Ideas and innovations that change the way we live
  • Creating a healthier state, nation, and world

The For ALL Bicentennial Campaign will officially conclude in June 2020 to coincide with Indiana University's Bicentennial, which is also Indiana University Kokomo's 75th anniversary serving north central Indiana.

Senior receives prestigious alumni scholarship
An Indiana University Kokomo student leader represented an elite group of IU seniors, as one of 30 recipients of the Distinguished Alumni Service Award (DASA) grants. Bailey Troutman, from Lapel, spoke on behalf of all of the student award winners, during a reception honoring them in Bloomington. She and the other honorees each received a $2,500 scholarship for the spring 2018 semester. For Troutman, the scholarship made her feel like part of the overall IU family.
Incoming students honored with scholarships

Local businessman donates $10,000 to baseball program
To say that Brent Owens is a passionate baseball fan might be an understatement. His business, cfd Investments, reflects his love of the sport, with décor including an American flag created from painted baseballs, photos autographed by players, and other memorabilia proudly displayed. As a former college and semi-pro player, current high school coach, and a business owner committed to contributing to his community, it was a natural fit for him to be among the first supporters of Indiana University Kokomo’s baseball program.
