Scott Bruns ’96 Wants to Give More Students Opportunities

by Katie Bradley | Apr 19, 2018


Scholarships allowed Scott Bruns ’96 to choose Marian University for college, a decision he credits with changing his life trajectory.

“I received a wonderful scholarship that allowed me to come to Marian and really expand my horizons, both personally and professionally,” Bruns said.

Bruns began his career with EY—the largest public accounting firm in the state and one of the big four in the world—as an audit professional in 1996. Throughout the last 20 years, he has had many opportunities with the firm, working his way around the world and to the top of the Indianapolis office. Now, he’s the managing partner of the firm’s Indianapolis office and leads more than 400 people.

As chair of the Support Leadership Scholarships and Experiential Learning Excellence, Bruns believes in creating the same opportunities for the next generation.

“Being the chair and being able to help guide the initiative for scholarships really means a lot to me and my family,” Bruns said. “It’s a great investment and a great opportunity to help students be successful in their careers.”

If you are interested in being a part of the Support Leadership Scholarships and Experiential Learning Excellence initiative, please contact Margie Stout at or at (317)955-6205.

 In March 2018, Bruns became a member of Marian University's Board of Trustees.
