Seven DePauw Seniors Receive Highly Competitive Orr Fellowships
Seven current DePauw University seniors are among a record 70 college graduates who are being placed in two-year, full-time positions with 47 companies across central Indiana as a result of winning 2017 Governor Robert D. Orr Entrepreneurial Fellowships.
Orr Fellowship candidates are mostly from Midwest colleges and universities. Candidates are recruited and evaluated on academic excellence, extracurricular involvement and leadership qualities. The program is extremely selective: more than 1,100 top students applied in the most recent academic year, only six percent were named Orr Fellows.
