A student scholarship endowed by UIRA is being investigated. At the September UIRA Board meeting, a subcommittee was formed to review the requirements for a UIRA scholarship fund. In the past month, subcommittee members President Beverly Robalino, President-Elect Nancy Hauserman and Director Michael Barron met to create a mission statement and define possible requirements for an annual scholarship. They also met with The University of Iowa Foundation staffers and they learned a minimum of $50,000 is needed to establish a permanent endowed scholarship. All proposed fund donations would be administered by the Foundation and be tax deductible. After discussing the scholarship requirements at the October meeting, the Board authorized the subcommittee to proceed with the further development of plans for a scholarship fund. More detailed information will be provided in The Gray Hawk next month.
