Simon Youth Scholarship Kick Starts College Career for IU Freshman

Julian Batts has a keen interest in international studies with his sights set on a career helping businesses boost productivity.  It’s a worthy professional goal and one that this Indiana University freshman is on track to attain.  

As a Carmel, Ind. high school student, Julian received a 2013 Simon Youth Community Scholarship through the Fashion Mall at Keystone, and he credits much of his early success in college to opportunities made possible through the scholarship.  
“I feel like I am in the right place for my education and for my career aspirations,” said Julian. “The SYF Scholarship really helped me start off on the right foot at IU by providing a way for me to participate in two important programs – the Intensive Freshman Seminar and the IU Beginnings Program.  SYF opened the door to these programs, and the experience has given me a true competitive edge in a challenging academic environment.”

The Intensive Freshman Seminar was a two-week program that allowed incoming freshmen to fast-track a challenging course before the official start of school, and the IU Beginnings program introduced a small group of students to recruiters from some of the nation’s top companies that partner with the Kelley School of Business. 

SYF is delighted to learn of Julian’s early success in college, and we wish him the best in his academic and career endeavors.

Like Julian, there are many other high school seniors waiting to write their own stories of academic success, and we want to share in that pursuit. The 2014 Simon Youth Community Scholarship application process is still open for high school students who live in any community that is home to a Simon Property. Click here to learn more, and apply before the January 21, 2014 deadline!
