In 2019, entrepreneur Fred Luddy bestowed a historic gift to IU that has helped propel the school into the future. In honor of Luddy’s generosity, the second-largest private gift in IU history, the school was named the Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering. Along with support for faculty and both graduate and undergraduate students, Luddy’s gift enabled the establishment of two faculty recognition programs: The Luddy Fellows and The Luddy Professorship.
The Luddy Faculty Fellows program, funded as part of a transformative $60 million gift from Fred Luddy in 2019, is designed to support excellence in research that promises to be important, imaginative, or timely. The ADR office sends out an announcement early in the fall and call for applications for the Luddy Fellows program.
