Donor Profile

The ONI Risk Partners Scholarship was originally established in 1988 as the Sycamore Agency Scholarship to encourage young people to pursue a career in insurance at Indiana State University. The Sycamore Agency was founded in 1932 and for many years served as an independent insurance agency providing commercial, personal and casualty insurance as well as life, health, group and other related insurance products. The Sycamore Agency became the ONB Insurance Group thereby changing the name of the scholarship in January 2003. The group was acquired by Prime Risk Partners in 2016 and renamed ONI Risk Partners.
