Doug Gruenewald Peer Mentor Scholarship
About the scholarship
This scholarship was established in honor of Dr. Doug Gruenewald, the former director of the Learning Communities program who served from 1995 - 2016. Dr. Gruenewald's commitment to enhancing student success was evidenced by his dedication to the development and continued growth of Learning Communities during his 21-year tenure with the program. Doug was an advocate for leadership development among undergraduate students. This scholarship provided additional financial support for student leaders dedicated to helping other students to persist and succeed academically at Iowa State University.
