The Barbara Lee Aubertine Scholarship was established by Matt Aubertine, a graduate of U-High in 1976, and ISU in 1987. He was moved to establish this scholarship to honor his mother, who was originally from California. Barbara, a UC Berkeley graduate, was a literature major. Matt's appreciation for the value of good writing was shaped by his mother.
A single scholarship award will be deposited in the recipient’s Illinois State University account at the beginning of the fall semester to help cover educational expenses. The amount of the award will be based on the earned income from the principal of the fund (estimated $750).
Applications for the 2023-2024 school year are due to the College of Arts and Sciences office by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, February 3, 2023. Scholarships will be awarded after the 10th day of the start of fall semester 2023. You must be enrolled as a full-time student in the fall to be awarded a scholarship. Applications can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the scholarship in the subject line or by bringing a copy to Room 141 in Stevenson Hall.
