Presidential scholarships are awarded annually to 10 Indiana valedictorians and salutatorians of senior high school classes.

Applicants must attend a state-commissioned high school in Indiana and earn an SAT score of 1200 (without writing component) or 1800 (with writing component), or an ACT composite score of 27. The program began in 1988 as an initiative to bring outstanding Indiana students to USI.

The B/MD scholarship program, which offers a provisional seat in the Indiana University School of Medicine, is sponsored jointly by USI and the Evansville Center for Medical Education, Indiana University School of Medicine.

Both scholarships are funded by private donors to the USI Foundation.

Founded in 1965, the University of Southern Indiana enrolls nearly 10,000 students in 80 undergraduate and graduate programs. The campus of this comprehensive public university is on 1,400 acres just outside of Evansville in Southwestern Indiana.
