Kenneth R. R. Gros Louis Scholarship established

Applications are being accepted for the Kenneth R. R. Gros Louis Scholarship, which is being awarded for the first time this year.

The scholarship, named for the former chancellor of the Indiana University Bloomington campus, is in the amount of $5,000 and will be awarded to an IU Bloomington student for use during the senior year or to a student in graduate studies.

Criteria for selection include demonstrated academic excellence, leadership in student activities, and a distinguished record of service as a university citizen.

Gros Louis left an indelible imprint on the lives of thousands of students, alumni, faculty and friends of IU. He is known for having an ear for student concerns as well as being a guardian of their hopes and desires. His evocative style of speaking will long be recalled for his use of eloquent quotations and poetry. Since 1963, he has served many roles in the field of education, in addition to his years as chancellor of the Bloomington campus.

Applications are available at the Dean of Students Office, Franklin Hall 108, and are due by May 15.

For more information, contact Suzanne J. Phillips, IU assistant dean of students, at 812-856-1626 or
