UIndy rolls out new Lugar Center scholarship program

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The University of Indianapolis announced on Friday that is has established a scholarship program that will award $10,000 per school year to each of 10 incoming students.

Students who attend the annual Richard G. Lugar Symposium for Tomorrow’s Leaders are eligible for the gift. The symposium, which will be held this year on Dec. 11, attracts about 400 high school juniors throughout Indiana to the university to learn about public issues. Lugar, Indiana’s senior U.S. senator, delivers the keynote speech.

The 10 students awarded the scholarship will receive $10,000 per year, for up to four consecutive years of undergraduate education.

The scholarships will support the mission of the university’s Richard G. Lugar Center for Tomorrow’s Leaders, which coordinates the annual symposium and other leadership-related events and programs. Scholarship recipients will be expected to undertake leadership roles on campus that might benefit them in their career choices.

Students must apply for the scholarships by Jan. 15 of their senior year in high school. A committee will evaluate applicants primarily on academic criteria.

Recipients are eligible for annual renewal if they remain in good social standing and maintain a full-time course load, as well as a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 as university undergraduates.

The annual symposium was founded in 1977 by Lugar, a former university trustee and instructor.

  1. How can any company that has the cash and other assets be allowed to simply foreclose and not pay the debt? Simon, pay the debt and sell the property yourself. Don't just stiff the bank with the loan and require them to find a buyer.

  2. If you only knew....

  3. The proposal is structured in such a way that a private company (who has competitors in the marketplace) has struck a deal to get "financing" through utility ratepayers via IPL. Competitors to BlueIndy are at disadvantage now. The story isn't "how green can we be" but how creative "financing" through captive ratepayers benefits a company whose proposal should sink or float in the competitive marketplace without customer funding. If it was a great idea there would be financing available. IBJ needs to be doing a story on the utility ratemaking piece of this (which is pretty complicated) but instead it suggests that folks are whining about paying for being green.

  4. The facts contained in your post make your position so much more credible than those based on sheer emotion. Thanks for enlightening us.

  5. Please consider a couple of economic realities: First, retail is more consolidated now than it was when malls like this were built. There used to be many department stores. Now, in essence, there is one--Macy's. Right off, you've eliminated the need for multiple anchor stores in malls. And in-line retailers have consolidated or folded or have stopped building new stores because so much of their business is now online. The Limited, for example, Next, malls are closing all over the country, even some of the former gems are now derelict.Times change. And finally, as the income level of any particular area declines, so do the retail offerings. Sad, but true.
