Harold DeGroff Scholarships Awarded to Two Entrepreneurship Students
January 11, 2013
Doug Booth, a senior in the School of Management, and Aaron Johnson, a senior in the School of Aeronautics and Astronautics Engineering, are the inaugural recipients of the Harold DeGroff Endowed Scholarship. These entrepreneurship students were selected based on their outstanding merit in their respective colleges as well as their participation in the Certificate in Entrepreneurship and Innovation Program. Both received financial aid awards of $1,200.
Harold DeGroff was a longtime faculty member and dean in the School of Aeronautical Engineering at Purdue and also taught in the School of Management. The endowed scholarship was established by his children, including Joe DeGroff, a partner in Ice Miller's Business Practice Group in Indianapolis and a member of the advisory boards for Purdue's Discovery Park and the Burton Morgan Center for Entrepreneurship. We look forward to honoring two students annually who are enrolled in the Certificate in Entrepreneurship and Innovation Program and in the disciplines of Management and Aeronautics and Astronautics.
