Foundation Announces Currier Scholarship Recipients

Award supports students pursuing Engineering Degrees at Purdue University

The Community Foundation of St. Joseph County has selected William Schalliol (Mishawaka High School) and Casey Zielke (John Adams High School,) as the 2024 recipients of the Donald C. and Marion E. Currier Scholarship. This highly competitive award provides recipients with up to full tuition, required fees, an allowance for books, and on-campus housing or an off-campus living allowance for up to six semesters at Purdue University. Both Schalliol and Zielke are pursuing a degree through the School of Mechanical Engineering at Purdue University.

Donald C. Currier was awarded a degree with distinction from the Purdue University School of Mechanical Engineering on June 15, 1926, graduating first in his class. Seventy-three years later, his wife Marion established this major scholarship fund in his memory to benefit students from St. Joseph County, Indiana.

This scholarship is available to students starting their sophomore year and beyond who are officially accepted into any of the engineering programs, with the exception of Engineering Education, from the Purdue University College of Engineering. The deadline to apply is June 1 each year.

Since 1992, the Community Foundation of St. Joseph County has been connecting people who care with causes that matter. A nonprofit philanthropic endowment, the Community Foundation serves the people of St. Joseph County through initiatives and grant-making in the areas of arts and culture, health and human services, youth and education, community and economic development, and parks and recreation.
