Cameron Hess ‘17 awarded Dean’s Council Scholarship at Indiana University
Cameron Hess ’17 matriculated directly into Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business upon graduation from Milken in 2017. She applied for the prestigious and highly competitive Dean’s Council Scholarship after being accepted to the business school, and was one of just 15 freshmen students at IU to receive the award. The Dean’s Council Scholarship is intended to foster diversity in the Kelley School of Business, and as a Jewish woman entering the business field after having lived in Israel through Milken’s Tiferet Fellowship, Hess stood out among the rest. In addition to receiving funding for tuition and fees, Dean’s Council Scholarship recipients are matched with an advisor and a Kelley student mentor. They also have the opportunity to reside in the Kelley Living Learning Center, a residential program that focuses on personal, academic and professional development. Hess is currently focused on a rigorous schedule of classes at IU, and plans to join Greek life in the spring semester. She is undecided on her major within the Kelley School of Business but plans to pursue a minor in either psychology or math.
Milken School is a college prep private day school in Los Angeles established on the foundation of the highest academic standards and Jewish values. This Jewish Day School serves students in grades 7-12.
