My involvement with the Regatta began my freshman year when I became the Coordinator of Regatta Week. I didn't know much about the event going into the committee, and I didn't realize how much of an impact it would have on my studies.
Over the years, I have watched as the Regatta grew and transformed into IUPUI's homecoming event. Now, as the 2019 Executive Director, I hope to keep the excitement going for the 11th Annual IUPUI Regatta! My goal this year is to shine a spotlight on all of the things that make this tradition so significant to the IUPUI campus and surrounding community, including the Stefan S. Davis scholarship fund!
The Regatta started eleven years ago with the purpose of bringing the IUPUI campus and the Indianapolis community together to build a new tradition on the downtown canal. Since that first event featuring nearly 1,000 attendees, the event has grown into a signature event attracting 10,000+ attendees and providing $10,000 in student scholarships each year.
With your help, we want to expand this event’s impact and provide more support to IUPUI students.
Currently 80% of students are reliant on federal loans to get through college. This reliance limits their ability to thrive in college. However, for the past four years, the Stefan S. Davis IUPUI Regatta Scholarship has provided scholarships to help students reach their full potential.
This year as we paddle down the canal, lets help equip our fellow students to reach academic goals. Please, make your gift today to the Stefan S. Davis IUPUI Regatta Scholarship!
