The Senior Academy Scholarship Program

The Arthur Mirsky Scholarship Program

The IUPUI Senior Academy sponsors three scholarships for study at the university under the
title of the IUPUI Senior Academy Scholarship Program. The Senior Academy Scholarship
Program was set in motion with a generous donation from a geology professor at IUPUI, Art
Mirsky, and his wife. The first three scholarships were given in 2003. Additional funds have
been added over the years by gifts from Senior Academy members and others to the scholarship
fund held by the Indiana University Foundation. All lifetime membership dues to the Academy
are allocated to the fund and are tax deductible.

from the vision of Arthur Mirsky.

All Academy scholarships are up to $3,000 and have several different deadlines for admission
and application. The scholarship criteria can be accessed through the links below. Students
must apply for these scholarships through the Office of Student Scholarships and adhere to
university rules and deadlines with respect to all three scholarships. A link to the
relevant pages on the website of the Office of Student Scholarship is included with each
scholarship description. The scholarship awards are given to their winners, whenever
possible, at the Senior Academy Annual Meeting luncheon in early June. Funds are distributed
through the Indiana University Foundation.

Below are links to the criteria for each of the three scholarships. Each document contains links to the relevant
IUPUI Scholarship Office pages. These criteria were revised in June 2015.
