BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Indiana University license plates are much more than automobile identifiers or symbols of school pride -- they're also a source of scholarship funds for IU students. This year, revenue generated by the sale of IU license plates has provided $23,000 in scholarships for 23 IU students.

Known as IU Alumni Association Scholars, the following students have received $1,000 scholarships for the 2005-06 fall semester. Chosen based on financial need and academic achievement, IUAA Scholars are full-time undergraduate students who also are sons and daughters of IU Alumni Association members.

The 2005-06 IUAA Scholars are:

Including this year's scholarships, the IUAA Scholars program has awarded 157 $1,000 scholarships in 11 years. In its history, the IU Alumni Association has awarded nearly $3 million in scholarships to IU students.

Nearly 32,000 IU plates are on Hoosier vehicles, making the IU plate the most popular collegiate license plate in Indiana. With the purchase of each IU license plate, a $25 tax-deductible contribution is made to the IU Alumni Association to fund programs and services that benefit students, alumni and the entire IU community.

The Indiana University Alumni Association serves the university and its more than 470,000 living graduates through programs, services and communications. One of the nation's largest alumni organizations, the IUAA strives daily to connect alumni and serve IU. For more information, visit or call 800-824-3044.
