Junior Executive Program
The Kelley Junior Executive Institute identifies 30 high-achieving African American, Latino, and American Indian high school juniors who are interested in majoring in business to participate in a college experience with the Kelley School of Business on the Indiana University Bloomington campus.

This exciting college experience, offered in conjunction with the IU Office of Academic Support and Diversity, includes workshops on how to apply to college, secure financial aid, manage time, take notes, and succeed in the study of business. What students will do after college is also an important focus of the Institute, including discussion of business career opportunities and the elements of entrepreneurship. In addition, students will enjoy living in a residence hall, visiting campus cultural centers, and most importantly, talking with current college students.

Students who wish to be considered for participation in the Institute must have a GPA of 2.7 or above, and each must submit the following:

  • An application
  • A photo release form
  • A consent for medical treatment
  • An official high school transcript
  • An essay that is no more than 250 words, describing the student's college plans and the area of business that he or she wishes to study
  • One letter of recommendation from a high school counselor or member of the clergy
