In accordance with the national agreement developed through the Council of Graduate Schools, which states that "an offer by an institution after April 15 is conditional on presentation by the student of the written release from any previously accepted offer," I agree that if I accept a fellowship, scholarship, or assistantship from Indiana University, the acceptance becomes binding after April 15 and will preclude the later acceptance of a stipend offer for the following academic year from any other institution unless I first obtain a written release from the graduate advisor of the relevant degree program of Indiana University.
The resolution of the Council of Graduate Schools, for which 373 universities have indicated support, including Indiana University, also states: "Students are under no obligation to respond to offers of financial support prior to April 15; earlier deadlines for acceptance of such offers violate the intent of this resolution."
