As a Hudson & Holland Scholar you may be eligible to participate in a one of three IFS courses designed with you and your Hudson & Holland requirements in mind. Hudson & Holland Scholars who participate in IFS will fulfill their Hudson & Holland L.E.A.D. (Leadership, Engagement, Academics, Diversity) requirement. 

Meet your scholar community

Scholars at IFS will have the unique opportunity to prepare for and transition to college life and college-level work before their fall semester coursework begins; create a support system of friends, faculty, and peer mentors; develop a sense of community with other Hudson & Holland Scholars; and take a three credit hour class with one of IU’s leading faculty members. You'll have all of these experiences and more as you take advantage of the combined resources of the IFS and Hudson & Holland Scholars programs.

The collaboration between Hudson & Holland and IFS offers incoming Hudson & Holland students the choice of three unique courses. Each course has been designed by top faculty members with the success of Hudson & Holland Scholars in mind. Because IFS classes are small, Hudson & Holland Scholars have the unique opportunity to work individually with their professor, make personal relationships with faculty, connect with other Hudson & Holland Scholars, and learn more about campus resources before the fall semester begins.
