The Indiana University Foundation has announced a $4 million gift from alumni Nycha Schlegel and Dallas "Bill" Loos. The money will largely benefit the School of Education, IU Libraries, the Kelley School of Business and the Wells Scholars Program.
About $2.2 million of the donation will be used to establish the Nycha Schlegel and Bill Loos Scholarship in the Wells Scholars Program. The remainder of the gift will create the Bill Loos and Nycha Schlegel Education Scholarship, the Bill Loos and Nycha Schlegel Business Scholarship and the Bill Loos and Nycha Schlegel Libraries Fund.
Schlegel earned her Bachelor of Science in education in 1970 and her Master of Science in Education in counseling and guidance in 1971 from the School of Education. Loos received a Master of Science in college student personnel administration from the School of Education in 1970 and an MBA from the Kelley School of Business in 1971.
"I am extremely grateful that IU gave me the opportunity to attend a world-class university, I want to give the same opportunities to other students who want to pursue their dreams." Loos said in a news release.
