FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 27, 2006
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Ten Kelley Scholars have been selected by the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University Bloomington.
Kelley Scholars, all incoming freshmen this fall who intend to major in business at IU Bloomington, will receive full tuition and fees, a stipend for living expenses, and other funding, including for overseas study. The award is for four years and has an annual value of more than $15,000 for recipients who are Indiana residents and about $30,000 for those who are non-residents.
The Kelley Scholars Program is funded by a $23 million gift from E.W. Kelley and his family, made to IU in the fall of 1997. The university named its school of business for the Kelley family in acknowledgement of the gift.
The Kelley Scholars were selected from a group of over 200 students who had been accepted to IU and who were invited to apply for the Kelley program because of their outstanding academic records. The application included references, a high school transcript, several personal statements on a variety of topics and an essay.
The 10 Kelley Scholars, their hometowns, and their high schools are:
- Carly Anderson, Carmel, Ind.; Carmel High School
- Katherine Harper, Westfield, Ind.; Carmel High School
