Stefan S. Davis Regatta Scholarship

The IUPUI Regatta Scholarship is named in honor of Stefan Scott Davis, the Executive Director of the IUPUI Office of Alumni Relations and senior executive with the IU Alumni Association from 1994-2015.  Under Stefan’s leadership and nurturing, the IUPUI Regatta was established in 2009 as a signature program of both the IUPUI campus and the IU Alumni Association, and it quickly grew to become a campus tradition. This annual scholarship program recognizes Stefan’s long and dedicated service to the campus, the University, and IUPUI’s growing alumni community, and should serve as an example to those who receive support for the role they will play as dedicated IUPUI alumni. Students who are awarded the scholarship will be recognized at the annual IUPUI Regatta. This scholarship shall be available to any IUPUI full-time or part-time undergraduate, graduate, or professional student in good standing with the university who has completed at least 26 hours and maintained at least a 3.0 GPA. Scholarships will be awarded to students based on academic performance, financial need, and leadership experience in campus-wide organizations or community service. Students do not need to hold positional-leadership roles within their campus organizations, but successful applicants must demonstrate their leadership through involvement. While no essay is required for this scholarship at this point, one may be required of applicants in future years.
