Additional Info

Every day at Indiana University, something extraordinary happens. Our students embark on profound, life-changing experiences. They challenge themselves to step outside their comfort zones. They discover their true potential. 

You’ve been committed to your child’s success from the day they entered the world—and you want the best for them as they embark on this next chapter of their life. So do we. 

That’s why we’re inviting you to join us in making your child’s IU experience as fulfilling and beneficial as possible. When you get involved as an IU parent, you ensure that your child makes the most out of the world-class education that Indiana University offers. IU is committed to providing your child with the richest, most fulfilling experience possible. 

Supporting the Parents Fund is an opportunity for you to contribute to your child’s success, strengthen your ties to the university, and ensure ongoing excellence on the IU Bloomington campus. 

Great families build great universities. Let’s start building.

Impact Stories

Without the Parents Fund Internship Housing Grant, I would not have been able to experience an internship in New York City. I am endlessly appreciative of the help with housing that allowed me to see a gorgeous city and work for a great company.
