The Ivy Tech Foundation at Ivy Tech Community College Fort Wayne and Warsaw has received an endowed gift from the estate of Mark M. Suedhoff. The $2.2 million gift will establish The Mark M. Suedhoff Endowed Success Scholarship and The Mark M. Suedhoff Endowed Scholarship – Chancellor’s Merit Award.
The college says the success scholarship is for Ivy Tech Fort Wayne and Warsaw students seeking a certificate, technical certificate or associate’s degree. Students are required to be enrolled in 12 credit hours per semester.
The chancellor’s merit award scholarship will be awarded annually to two, first-time, Ivy Tech Fort Wayne and Warsaw students seeking their first associate degree. Ivy Tech says students are required to have a high school GPA of 3.0 or higher and be a high school graduate within the same year of the receiving the award. They must also be enrolled in a minimum of 12 credit hours during the fall and spring semester.
“We are extremely grateful for the generous donation in memory of community leader Mark M. Suedhoff,” said Tracina Smith, executive director of the Ivy Tech Foundation in Fort Wayne. “It is Ivy Tech’s mission to create affordable opportunities for career advancement through education. These unique endowed scholarships will create a tangible, lasting impact on the lives of students in northeast Indiana.”
Ivy Tech says both scholarships will be awarded in the fall.
