Jerry Foster Memorial Scholarship

Jerry Foster Memorial Scholarship

Jerry Foster, BS'74, was a devoted alumnus of Indiana University. He died in December 1992 after serving as an alumni chapter director for the IU Alumni Association for more than six years. During that time, Jerry worked with hundreds of alumni volunteers who regarded him as a friend. He was also admired and respected by his IU colleagues. A memorial scholarship in his name was established by contributions from many friends, family members, IU alumni chapters from around the world, and the IU Foundation.

Criteria: A $1,500 scholarship will be granted to a student who is a son or daughter of an alumni chapter leader (currently serving as an officer or board member). The student must be enrolled as a full-time undergraduate student on any of the IU campuses. The scholarship will be awarded based on academic achievement and financial need as determined by the Office of Student Information and Fiscal Services. Preference will be given to those who have not previously been awarded the scholarship. If you have any questions, please contact Anne Bono at 812-855-4664 or afhatton@iu.edu.

Application deadline is March 28, 2014.
