Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) is a large, public research university in Indianapolis, the capital city of Indiana. IUPUI ranks among the top 200 (or top 5%) of colleges and universities in the U.S., according to U.S. News & World Report, and offers degrees from both Indiana University and Purdue University on one dynamic and diverse campus. Due to the unique dual-university setup of the campus, students in our Schools of Science and Engineering & Technology earn a Purdue degree, while students in our Schools of Liberal Arts, Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, Informatics & Computing, Herron School of Art & Design, Kelley School of Business (to name a few) earn an Indiana University degree. 

IUPUI receives over $300 million in researching funding per year, and is a largely diverse campus with over 2,000 international students (~6.5% of the University's population) from 145 countries. On the urban campus, students benefit from nearby cultural and internship opportunities. For example, Indianapolis has a strong life health sciences sector (home of Lilly pharmaceutical company, Anthem Inc., and Roche Diagnostics USA) and burgeoning tech industry (including a large Salesforce office and an upcoming Infosys office, both in close proximity to our campus). ​ All international students are eligible for scholarships from 20%-60% of tuition, based on grades and SAT scores.
