Community Foundation Announces 2022 Currier Scholarship Winner
Levi Dickson (SJHS '20) Receives Highly Competitive Award
The Community Foundation of St. Joseph County has selected Levi Dickson (St. Joseph High School, 2020) as the 2022 recipient 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. Dickson is in the School of Materials Engineering at Purdue, and has excelled in his academic work.
Also, the Community Foundation has renewed the Currier Scholarship of past recipient McKenna Hillsdon-Smith (Penn High School, 2019).
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 School of Engineering. The deadline for application is June 15 of each year. Applications are available through the Community Foundation’s website.
