If you are a high school senior who has actively participated in academic and extracurricular activities and has been a leader in your high school and local community, you will want to apply for this award. The Emens Leadership Scholarship is open to both in-state and out-of-state students.

The number and the value of Emens Leadership Scholarships may vary slightly from year to year, but in recent years the value has been one-half the amount of in-state tuition. Six to 10 new scholarships have been awarded each year to incoming freshmen. These awards are for eight semesters and are subject to an annual review of the student’s leadership and academic progress.

The Emens Scholars form a lively community of leaders on campus. They meet as a group at least twice a year, and they support each other in their wide-ranging endeavors across campus both in and out of the classroom.

The Whitinger Scholarship is the signature scholarship of the Honors College and is the most prestigious scholarship awarded by Ball State University, honoring 10 exceptionally talented students each year. Established in 1976, the scholarship is supported by academic programs, social activities, and special opportunities as well as the funds for the scholarship itself.

AWARD AMOUNT

The Whitinger Scholarship covers full tuition (in-state or out-of-state), mandatory university fees (those which apply automatically to all students), and on-campus room and board (a typical DeHority Complex shared double with the 14 meal/week plan) for eight semesters as an undergraduate at Ball State.

Students who receive another merit based scholarship from the university (Presidential Scholarship, Ball State Scholars Award, etc.) will have that award apply to tuition and fees first and the Whitinger will apply to remaining tuition and fee charges, as well as on-campus room and board.

CRITERIA

Requirements include returning the written application, an on-campus conversation with the director of the program or a representative of the committee, and a spontaneous essay.

Scholarship recipients are selected by committee based on their academic ability, character, creativity, and potential for leadership.

  • Be accepted to Ball State University and its Honors College.
  • Complete the Indiana Academic Honors Diploma or an equivalent curriculum if you are not from Indiana.
