BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – The Indiana University Kelley School of Business announced the second class of Conrad Prebys Scholars, who began their studies this fall.
Entering freshmen who applied to IU and were directly admitted to the Kelley School were eligible. Preference was given to students who are traditionally underrepresented in the field of business. Students receive partial funding toward standard tuition and fees and other support in the form of an advisor and a Kelley student mentor.
The Prebys Scholars program was established as part of a $20 million gift in 2015. His gift also supported the construction of the Conrad Prebys Career Services Center at Kelley and an outdoor amphitheater for musical and theatrical productions across campus, also named for Prebys, an alumnus and real estate developer who passed away in 2016.
This year’s nine Prebys Scholars, their high schools and their hometowns are:
- Oluseyi Alege, Shrewsbury High School, Shrewsbury. Mass.
- Zoee Carreon, Franklin Central High School, Indianapolis
- Jacob Davis, Washington High School, Washington, Ind.
- Aiden Gonzalez, Minnetonka High School, Minnetonka, Minn.
- Baudelio Lozano, East Chicago Central High School, East Chicago, Ind.
- Jacob Moran, Portage High School, Portage, Ind.
- Jordan Nouri, Signature School, Evansville, Ind.
- Ugo O’Gonuwe, Phillips Academy, Andover, Md.
- Andrea Roman, Roncalli High School, Indianapolis
The scholarships are renewable as long as recipients meet the expectations of their scholarship program. More information about the Prebys Scholars program is available from the Kelley Office of Diversity Initiatives at 812-855-4474 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
