Northwest - Chancellors' Scholars

The generosity of community members, businesses, alumni, faculty and staff over the last sixteen years has allowed the Ivy Tech Foundation to create the Chancellors’ Scholarship Endowment Fund. This Scholarship gives the Foundation the opportunity to provide many students scholarships forever. This year, the Ivy Tech Foundation was able to award 28 scholarships totaling $42,000 to students from the Lake County, Michigan City and Valparaiso Campuses. We hope you will help us continue to grow this fund so we can award even more scholarships to more students each year! Your support assists Ivy Tech in its mission of Changing Lives, Making Indiana Great!

Because of your generosity we are able to provide much needed scholarship to students like Jourden, Lori and Jasmine.  Their stories are shining examples of the direct impact your donation makes in a students life at Ivy Tech.

Jourden Bixenman:  Design Technology

While in high school, I was given an incredible opportunity to become experienced in Engineering and Technology. I became a member of the Porter County Technical Honor Society, only offered to the top ten percent of the Porter County Career Center students. Ivy Tech was my college of choice. I am a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, only given to the top ten percent of students on campus. Being a part of a variety of clubs taught me a lot, has exposed me to different people and allowed me to create many relationships. Also, attending Ivy Tech has allowed me to stay at home with my family and help pay for tuition, setting me ahead in my goals. I am a full-time student and a part-time employee with two jobs. I have learned how to balance school and work effectively to achieve a 3.756 GPA.While in high school, I was given an incredible opportunity to become experienced in Engineering and Technology.

Lori Mitchell:  Nursing

I attended a community college after high school, graduating as a Medical Assistant and worked for three years until I got married. After having children, returning to school was both a struggle and a blessing. I do not qualify for any grants, and the high cost of school is daunting. My husband works very hard to support us and receiving this scholarship is a tremendous help. As a non-traditional student, I have a higher level of maturity and focus; a focus on the prize of graduation. I struggle with personal health issues, but I am determined to succeed. My drive comes from wanting to contribute to the support of my family.

Jasmine Wade:  Physical Therapist Assistant

Ivy Tech gives students like me the same education as a four-year university. It’s affordable and gives me the chance to become a better person in life by having an education. My career goals start with completing the Physical Therapist Assistant Program at Ivy Tech and then applying for transitioning programs to fulfill my ultimate goal. Helping my community is very important. I plan to go back to my high school, motivate students who want to major in PTA and help guide them in the right direction. My experience with leadership is vital, and I will do my absolute best to make sure no one is left behind and assist others to work together as a team to get any job done.  

A gift of any amount makes a direct impact on a students education.  A personal Thank You from all of our Chancellors' Scholars!
