The generosity of three donors has made it possible to offer new scholarships for students at Indiana University East. Paul Kriese, professor of political science at IU East, and Rod and Chris Weiss will support the two new scholarships.
Indiana University East has awarded $78,000 in donor-funded scholarships to incoming freshmen and returning students for the 2013-2014 academic year.
Stephanie Hays-Mussoni, director of Gift Development, said over 130 students received scholarships from donor-based scholarships.
Indiana University East welcomes community supporters to the Spirit of Philanthropy Luncheon to thank these individuals for their contributions to scholarships, internships, leadership experiences and community service opportunities for students. The luncheon is from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 17, at Forest Hills Country Club in Richmond. The event raises funds for scholarships and other community involvement experiences that provide important skill-building experiences for students.
Stephanie Hays-Mussoni will join Indiana University East as director of Gift Development beginning June 20. As director, she will lead IU East’s overall fundraising efforts, fostering relationships with alumni and friends of the campus and developing philanthropic support for campus initiatives, programs, and scholarships.
