Honors Convocation

Indiana University Bloomington holds all of its students in high esteem, and it takes an added measure of pride in those who demonstrate sustained academic excellence over time.

We confer upon undergraduates who have a cumulative grade point average of 3.8 or higher, the designation of Founders Scholar. We honor Founders Scholars and other academically distinguished undergraduates at an annual event, the IU Bloomington Honors Convocation.

What to Wear

Honors Convocation is a formal ceremony, and the university officials and a small number of students who are seated onstage wear caps and gowns. Founders Scholars and their guests, who will be seated in the audience, are advised to wear business casual attire.
