The Sutton Scholarship is attracting the best and the
brightest to campus, and, during the University Family Drive, your commitment to
the fund will be doubled by the Foundation for IUP. With your support, IUP can offer the
scholarship to even more incoming freshmen and continue to increase the caliber
of students enrolled each year.
Students from the first cohort of Sutton Scholars, found in
each of IUP’s six colleges, are studying to become the next generation’s
community leaders and problem solvers. With
an average GPA of 3.65 and 77 perfect 4.0s, the data behind the first cohort
of 256 scholarship recipients is impressive and demonstrates the program’s
worthiness of your investment.
“The students that receive the Sutton Scholarship are nothing
short of amazing. I had the opportunity to interview some of them as
scholarship applicants and then again as scholarship awardees. During each
interaction, I am consistently impressed. These are the students that we want
to enroll here. They are the young adults that I want to call my fellow
alumni upon their graduation. I love that the Foundation for IUP has offered
this matching incentive. It really makes supporting these students an easy
choice,” said Emily Smeltz ’01, M’02, director of annual giving.
