The Roger and Joyce Eads Endowed Scholarship was established by Roger and Joyce Eads.
Roger graduated from Illinois State in 1971 with a Mathematics Major and a BS in Education. Joyce graduated from Blackburn College in 1970 with a BA in English and later completed some computer science courses at ISU. They taught school for a few years after graduation followed by long careers at State Farm Insurance Companies.
The purpose of this scholarship is to provide financial assistance to deserving students. Roger and Joyce worked and received financial aid during their college years. They want to help current ISU students obtain their degrees leading to increased career opportunities and satisfying social and personal lives.
