Small Group of Sutton Scholarship Recipients, 2015The 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.
