The Hudson & Holland Scholars Program was established in 1987 as the Minority Achievers Program by Herman C. Hudson and James P. Holland. Designed as a scholarship and support program for high-achieving, underrepresented minorities, the program provides funding, as well as a variety of opportunities to enrich and support the holistic needs of deserving students. In 2020 Hudson & Holland scholars received $28 million in total IU gift aid.
