Two Indiana State University students have recently been awarded $4,500 stipends from Nonprofit Leadership Alliance's Next Generation Nonprofit Leadership Program.
The Nonprofit Leadership Alliance prepares and certifies professionals to strengthen and lead nonprofit organizations.
The stipend will support senior public relations major Avrielle Scott and senior recreation and sports management major Sarah Mihich in their requirements to become certified nonprofit professionals.
Other requirements Scott and Mihich have successfully tackled include completion of required coursework, membership in the Nonprofit Student Leader Association and attendance at the annual national conference, executive director of the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance Nathan Schaumleffel said.
Both students are able to use the scholarships as they see fit. Scott, who is completing her 300-hour internship in Hammond, Ind., plans on using the money for her regular expenses, while Mihich will be using the money towards her ISU tuition fees.
"I never thought I would win, but I applied anyways," Scott said. "Remember to always have high goals."

"Get involved on campus," Mihich said. "Doing well in classes isn't enough anymore."
