P.E. MacAllister Political Science Scholarship

P.E. MacAllister Political Science Scholarship


This scholarship was created by P.E. MacAllister, a prominent businessman, civic leader, and philanthropist to support undergraduate students who are majoring in political science or law and have demonstrated financial need. P.E. funded this scholarship in honor of his dear friend, Jim Morris, when he became heavily involved in Indianapolis politics in the 1960's and met Jim Morris who served as former Mayor Richard Lugar's chief of staff from 1967 to 1973. Currently, Jim is the vice chairman of Pacers Sports and Entertainment, and is especially important to us at IUPUI, as he serves on the IU Board of Trustees.
