Jerry L. Williams Endowed Scholarship

Guided by data about evolving student preferences, we know that many of today’s students are drawn to business related majors, but also are becoming more interested in expressing themselves creatively and combining programs in non-traditional and synergistic ways.  They do not define themselves by one interest or in one way, but in myriad ways-and they want to explore all of them.

The professional and personal success of our DePauw alumni-exemplified by Jerry L. Williams, Class of 1954-throughout their lives proves that our liberal arts-based education prepares our students for a life of meaning and means.  This new model leverages that historical success and evolves it to interconnect creativity, business, humanities, and sciences for our hyperconnected and continually changing global society.

Jerry L. Williams Endowed Scholarship for rising Senior Student: Highest priority in awarding the scholarship will be given to a student majoring in an area under the auspices of the School of Business and Leadership and who has a demonstrated interest in music evidenced by their participation in a music ensemble, classes, private lessons or performing arts.
