Community and School Partnerships is proud to host Spring Shadow, a three-day academic, residential program that pairs current ninth, tenth and eleventh graders with college students for one-on-one mentoring. By shadowing a current IU student, participants gain first-hand knowledge of university-level academic expectations, as well as an introduction to campus life. The program is held on IU's beautiful Bloomington campus and supports under-served and underrepresented high school students.
Spring Shadow participants have the opportunity to attend classes with their mentor. During the program, guests also learn about campus resources and financial aid, take part in various activities with their mentors, and stay on-campus.
There is no cost to students or families to participate in Spring Shadow. Housing and meals will be provided. Students and families are responsible for providing transportation to and from the Bloomington campus.
Spring Shadow is open to current 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students. Successful applicants typically have a minimum GPA of 2.5.
Current 12th grade students who have already been accepted to Indiana University and are interested in an on-campus experience, are encouraged to contact the Office of Admissions regarding attending a Red Carpet Day event.
