BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Indianapolis residents John Glennon and Britta Schreiber have been named Kelley Scholars at Indiana University Bloomington.

Glennon is a graduate of North Central High School and Schreiber is a graduate of Lawrence Central High School.

The Kelley Scholarship honors the best undergraduate students entering IU to study business. Kelley Scholars receive tuition and fees, a stipend for living expenses, and other funding, which may include funding for internships and overseas study. The award is for four years and has an annual value of more than $12,000.

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 extent of the gift.

The Kelley Scholars were selected from a group of 120 students who had been accepted to IU and were invited to apply for the Kelley program because of their outstanding records. Applications included references, high school transcripts and several personal statements on a variety of topics, including an essay.

Twenty-four finalists were invited to the IU Bloomington campus Feb. 23-24. The weekend included extensive interviews with faculty members, submission by each candidate of a writing sample, campus tours and a dinner. The winners were selected on the basis of their performance that weekend.

While at North Central, Glennon was active on the speech team, in the orchestra and in the marching band. He was a member of the National Honor Society and captain of the school's "Brain Game" team. He was a National Merit semi-finalist, AP Scholar with Distinction and recipient of the Classroom Leadership Award and the Marion County Principals Association Academic Achievement Award.

While at Lawrence Central, Schreiber was a member of the marching band, the tennis team, the French Club, the New World Youth Symphony and the All-State Band. She is a member of the National Honor Society and was named the Photography Student of the Year.

Both students will continue their education at IU this fall.
