Aspiring RISE Scholars

Becoming a RISE Scholar

To become a RISE Scholar, you must complete at least two of the four RISE experiences: research, international, service learning, and experiential learning. Completion of all four RISE experiences is highly encouraged for Honors College students.

Once you have completed two of the four RISE experiences, your status as a RISE Scholar is noted on your transcript and can be added to your resume or CV.

The Perks

What are the benefits of becoming a RISE Scholar? The RISE program puts you in a unique position to not only have a better understanding of your own identity and personal growth by way of continued reflection but also to enhance your learning and understanding of your local, national, and global surroundings.

As you work to become a RISE Scholar, you will gain knowledge and skills that set you apart from your peers. RISE scholarship is a way to gain hands-on experiences before you graduate and enter the job market.

It was a life-changing experience. It was probably one of the best experiences in college.

Flaunt It

Are there ways to showcase my RISE experience?

Yes! ePortfolios, like personal websites, are a great way to display your RISE experiences. Though not all courses may incorporate an ePortfolio, you can always create and maintain one yourself.

In addition, RISE Day is an opportunity to showcase your RISE experiences. Held each fall, RISE Day is an engaging conference for instructors, students, and community partners to share their participation in the RISE program. Contact the RISE program director at jtspring@iupui.edu to find out how you can get involved in the next RISE Day!
