IUN Hosts 16th Annual Scholarship Gala

(GARY, IN) -- Indiana University Northwest will host its 16th Annual Scholarship Gala Tuesday, December 11, at 6:30 p.m. at the Radisson Hotel in Merrillville. 

 The scholarship gala provides an opportunity to not only honor and recognize some of Northwest Indiana's brightest and hardest working students, but to show appreciation to the donor organizations and individuals who contribute to IUN's scholarship programs.  

With the help of individuals, civic groups, alumni, businesses, and philanthropic organizations, IU Northwest makes a significant investment in intellectual capital and human potential by offering these scholarships to its brightest students. 

To help fulfill the educational needs of students, IU Northwest offers more than 50 types of scholarships.  The university is awarding approximately $500,000 in scholarships to almost 500 students this academic year.
 
"For many years now the Scholarship Gala has provided a great opportunity for friends of the university community to support our most important asset, our students," says Jeff Lorber, Vice Chancellor for University Advancement and Chief Development Officer.  "With the continuing commitment of gala patrons and friends, IU Northwest is dedicated to offering even more scholarship assistance for our students in the years to come."

For more information on attending the Gala, please contact Cathy Tallos by calling (219) 980-6801.
