BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Sixty students at Indiana University's Kelley School of Business are receiving the first scholarships resulting from an educational scholarship gift of $5.4 million from the Roy F. and Joann Cole Mitte Foundation of Austin, Texas.

The gift has resulted in undergraduate scholarships valued at $5,000 each for the Bloomington campus that will be matched by the Kelley School to total 120 scholarships at the end of four years. In addition, IU will double the fellowship funds from $5,000 to $10,000 for its 10 Mitte graduate fellowships.

The Mitte Foundation was established 10 years ago and has become the largest business scholarship program in the nation. Mitte business scholarship programs also are in place at Texas A&M University, Ohio State University, St. Edward's University and Pennsylvania State University. The foundation's largest scholarship program, which is university-wide, is at Texas State University-San Marcos. The Mitte family has been highly successful in insurance and real estate endeavors.

Below is a complete list of the scholarship recipients and their hometowns:
