Grambling State

The Louisiana Board of Regents recently approved five new endowed scholarships and professorships at Grambling State University.

The new scholarships and professorships include:

-- Dr. Adrian and Gilonda Butler Endowed Professorship in Cyber Security

-- Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. – Delta Iota Endowed Scholarship

-- Ruby Billups Standard of Excellence Scholarship (Alpha Theta Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.)

-- Lonnie B. Smith Endowed Scholarship

-- Ruston Alumni Chapter’s Family of Coach James Wicks Duncan Sr. Endowment

“What makes this program unique is that we were able to utilize funding from outside sources to grow the value of our endowments,” said Marc Newman, vice president for Advancement. “Combining Title III funding as a 1 to 1 match, combined with the Board of Regents program that offers an 80/20 match for the endowed programs, has made the difference.”
