Ghatnekar Family Scholarship
LAMPers typically get good grades—and some get excellent grades. The Ghatnekar family funded this scholarship to reward one or two LAMP students who demonstrate exemplary academic performance by maintaining at least a 3.5 GPA on a 4.0 scale.
The Ghatnekar Family Scholarship provides financial support for LAMP students who:
- Are Indiana residents.
- Have completed the first year at Indiana University.
- Demonstrate high academic achievement by earning a minimum GPA of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale.
Résumé, Recommendation Letter, and Brief Biography

One letter of recommendation from IU Bloomington faculty is required and should be submitted to LAMP@indiana.edu directly by the recommender. Recommendations are due at the end of the LAMP application period.
