Glaubinger Entrepreneurship Scholarships
Entrepreneurship was a lifetime commitment for the late Larry Glaubinger. The 1949 IU accounting graduate gave back to his alma mater through scholarships, professorships, and service for many years.
Glaubinger funded eight scholarships for junior and senior entrepreneurship majors, which were awarded for the first time in fall 2001.
Glaubinger started Channel Textiles as an entrepreneurial venture, sold it, then later bought Stern & Stern Industries, Inc., a world leader in the manufacture of exotic industrial textiles. Astronauts in the U.S. space program wore one fabric; another is used in the manufacture of air safety bags.
Glaubinger started in the PhD program at Columbia University, intending to teach business. After one semester he decided to limit himself to a full-time MBA and pursue philanthropic interests on the side.
This gentlemanly entrepreneur served on the IU Foundation's board of directors and on the national steering committee for IU's Endowment Campaign. He was a member of the Dean's Advisory Council for the Kelley School and IU's Well House Society. IU awarded him an honorary doctor of laws degree in 1973 and the Distinguished Alumni Service Award in 1997. The Kelley School named him to the Academy of Alumni Fellows in 1992.
