Elite 50 Information and Application

Elite 50 logo

The purpose of the Elite 50 is to recognize and reward achievement outside the classroom among our 8,100 graduate and professional student population.  The Elite 50 represent the top one half of one percent of the graduate and professional student body at IUPUI. Since awards for academic accomplishments already exist, the Elite 50 will mainly focus on achievements outside of the classroom. Applications for Elite 50 2017 are available now on The Den. Applications will be due March 10th. 

The Graduate and Professional Student Government (GPSG) will be hosting the 2nd Annual Elite 50 Celebration Dinner. Elite 50 is modeled after IUPUI’s traditional Undergraduate Top 100 Outstanding Students Recognition Dinner. But Elite 50 is open exclusively to graduate and professional students. The dinner will take place April 19th, 2017 from 6pm-8pm in Campus Center Room 450.  This celebration will not only recognize the elite 50 graduate and professional students, but also awards will be given out to the top student from each school, the top ten overall students, and will culminate with the Dr. Charles R. Bantz Award for Excellence. A $500 scholarship will be awarded to the winner of the Dr. Charles R. Bantz Award for Excellence.
