May 6, 2015  

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Seven incoming students, including four from Indiana, have been awarded Purdue Stamps Scholarships.  

The full-ride scholarship is made possible by Purdue scholarship funds and the Stamps Family Charitable Foundation Inc., said Jennifer Dexter, senior assistant director and scholarship coordinator for the Office of Admissions. In addition to the monetary award, these scholars will each have access to a $10,000 enrichment fund to help cover expenses for study opportunities, such as conferences, seminars, study abroad programs, leadership training and research internships.

This year's recipients are:

* Matthew G. Cunningham, Indianapolis, studying first-year engineering

* Kristen E. Frohning, Newton, Illinois, studying neurobiology and physiology

* Barbara McAnulty, Hickory, North Carolina, studying first-year engineering

*.Nicolas G. Morales, Centerville, Ohio, studying first-year engineering

* Lauren L. Primer, Brookfield, Illinois, studying first-year engineering

* Sarah N. Rodenbeck, Indianapolis, studying cell, molecular and developmental biology

* Kai M. Strubel, Noblesville, Indiana, studying first-year engineering

Students receiving the scholarship are selected based on a pool of the highest achieving high school seniors who were admitted by mid-December. These students are identified by the Office of Admissions and are then invited to apply. Applications are reviewed by a committee, which decides who will be nominated for the scholarship. A representative from the Stamps Foundation interviews each nominee to select recipients.
