The Greenebaum Memorial Fund was established by Elisabeth C. Greenebaum of Chicago, Illinois to provide scholarships for the education of students at Illinois State University who are studying to become teachers, and who may not otherwise be able to afford college tuition. All scholarships shall be made in the memory of Elisabeth C. Greenebaum, her parents, Helen Greenebaum and Jacob Greenebaum, and her brother, Henry E. Greenebaum.
Eight scholarships, each consisting of $5,000, will be awarded annually. Ms. Greenebaum did not intend that a scholarship would cover 100% of a recipient’s total cost.
Each candidate for a scholarship from the Greenebaum Memorial Fund must be or have:
A teacher education major in the College of Arts and Sciences
Applied to student teach in the fall 2022 and/or spring 2023 semester
3.0 GPA cumulative or transfer GPA
A full-time student
Demonstrated financial need
Applications for the 2022-2023 school year are due to the College of Arts and Sciences office by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, February 4, 2022.
