Sam H. Jones Community Service Scholarships

You’ve already done great things. A Sam H. Jones scholarship will help you do even more.

The Sam H. Jones Community Service Scholarship Program recognizes what you’ve already accomplished: it’s awarded based on exemplary service in the community, in your high school, or at IUPUI. But it’s really focused on what you’re going to do next.

The many Sam H. Jones scholarships offer financial awards, but also a variety of components to help you grow as a student, community member, and leader. Scholarships include:

  • Many volunteer opportunities
  • A service learning course
  • Leadership training
  • Opportunities to learn about and address different social issues
  • Networking with faculty and community leaders
  • A family of service-minded students
