a BOLD milestone

A BOLD Milestone

Thanks to the generosity of Sycamores around the world, we surpassed our $100 million milestone to support Indiana State University with student scholarships, faculty excellence, experiential learning, and Sycamore Athletics. We look forward to seeing the philanthropic spirit continue to thrive during this campaign’s life-cycle as we continue to step up to new challenges and take ISU beyond BOLD.

student scholarships

Here, aspiring scholars have the opportunity to nurture intellectual curiosity and gain the skills and knowledge they need to thrive, here and beyond.

experiential learning

Here, we prepare students to think critically, and engage them with undergraduate research, study abroad opportunities, and unique fellowships.

faculty excellence

Here, our world-renowned faculty is given the support and resources they need to drive academic success and provide students with bold experiences.

Sycamore athletics

Here, we’re committed to supporting our athletic programs and making this a competitive NCAA destination for student-athletes everywhere.

helping students Bridge the Gap

With 50% first generation college goers, and the same percentage with significant financial need, our Bridge the Gap scholarship is all about helping students overcome the financial hurdles of higher education. For most of our students, that insurmountable obstacle can be as little as $1,500. With your support, we can help students bridge the gap and thrive.

Our Campaign Cabinet represents a diverse group of professional and business leaders who have volunteered their time and resources in service to the Foundation for the benefit of Indiana State University. They are deeply committed to the success of this campaign.

Be So Bold

Give today and help Sycamores grow strong! With almost half of our student body made up of first generation college goers, and an equal percentage of financially fragile students, this bold campaign is necessary. Your generosity will help students who thrive in their academic pursuits and prepare them to go on to do amazing things with their lives. It’s time to get loud, and Be So Bold.
