AU Receives Increase to Madison County Scholarship Funding


Anderson, Ind. — Anderson University recently received a $100,000 matching grant from the Madison County Foundation that brings the university’s total funded Madison County Scholarship pool up to $200,000. Paired with a merit scholarship, eligible recipients of the Madison County Scholarship will receive $18,000 or more, annually, toward the cost of attendance at Anderson University.

“It’s been a pleasure to partner with Executive Director Sally DeVoe and our friends at the Madison County Foundation in a continued effort to keep local talent local,” said Heather Kim, vice president for enrollment, marketing and communication. “With this additional funding, Anderson University may award even more scholarships (for first-time residential freshmen, commuters, and transfer students) and make the dream of obtaining a college degree attainable for even more students.”

This scholarship was created with the intent to increase community pride and engagement and helps to provide private education for a public school price. AU has a deep desire to be a part of the initiative to “keep local talent local” by investing in the lives of Madison County students and their families. 

“I knew for a while that I wanted to attend AU, but going to a private college was going to be a big financial commitment for my family,” said Betsy Mckinney ’23, a Pendleton Heights High School graduate. “The Madison County Scholarship was a major part of what made AU possible for me.”
