BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- The Indiana University Student Foundation is announcing the availability of more than $30,000 in scholarships for students during the spring semester.

The scholarships available include those for Little 50 relay race participants, Little 500 riders, working students and IU Student Foundation members. Applications are now available on the IU Student Foundation Web site -- Applications are due March 7, 2007, which is the last day before IU's spring break.

Scholarships will be funded through money raised from ticket sales at IU Sing, Little 50 and Little 500. Since 1951, the IU Student Foundation has used the Little 500 bicycle race and other student activities to raise money for working student scholarships. Today, the organization annually awards more than $70,000 in scholarships.

Over the past 57 years, the IU Student Foundation has given more than $1.4 million in scholarships to IU students. It also creates leadership opportunities for about 500 student volunteers who are led by a 23-member steering committee.
