President’s Scholars Golf Outing Raises More Than $94,000

The 29th annual President’s Scholars Golf Outing raised more than $94,000 in support of President’s Scholars at Indiana State University. 

The outing, sponsored by Ratio Design and held at the Brickyard Crossing Golf Course, recognizes President’s Scholars and their achievements at ISU and beyond.  

The President’s Scholarship is awarded to high-achieving incoming freshmen, providing full in-state tuition and premium housing. President’s Scholars study within the Honors College, which provides opportunities to study, conduct research, participate in high-powered experiential learning and professional development, and exchange ideas in a challenging and supportive academic environment. 

“We greatly appreciate the generosity, and tenacity during a heat wave, of those who participated in the 2023 President’s Scholars Golf Outing,” said Dean of the Honors College Dr. Greg Bierly. “The funds raised during the event support some of our finest students and provide them the resources to be campus leaders and to achieve lofty goals. The dedication and genuine interest in our students shown by the participants in the President’s Scholars Golf Outing is an inspiration to me and to the scholars.” 

Shelbie Winstead, a President’s Scholar who attended the golf outing, said that because of supporters of the President’s Scholar Program, she has been able to optimize her experience at ISU inside and outside of the classroom.  

“I have been able to network with Sycamore alumni, donors, and supporters while pursuing an education,” she said. “The President’s Scholar Program is invaluable, and I thank all participants at this year’s outing for their support.” 

Seven President’s Scholars were in attendance at this year’s golf outing. Each of them received guidance and knowledge from golfers in attendance; one of which was Indiana State University Foundation Board member Todd Osburn who got his first hole-in-one at the 2023 PSGO.  

“Our 29th annual President’s Scholars Golf Outing was an exciting and memorable one for our students and golfers, especially Todd Osburn,” said Andrea Angel, Vice President of University Advancement and CEO of the ISU Foundation. “Sycamore supporters who participated in this year’s outing braved the heat, displaying their bold dedication to connecting with and championing the success of our President’s Scholars. We continue to be thankful to those who ensure our students can network with our vast alumni network and build upon their classroom experiences to lead to greater accomplishments in the future.” 

The date of next year’s President’s Scholars Golf Outing will be announced soon. Browse the photo album from this year’s event at To support ISU, visit
