Laurine Reiske was a 1932 graduate of Illinois State University. After her death, her husband, John W. Reiske, created a fund in her name to provide scholarships for high-achieving students as a part of a bequest to the University. The College of Arts and Sciences received that estate gift in 2005.
Scholarships are to be awarded to undergraduate students enrolled in the College of Arts and Sciences at Illinois State University in accordance with the following criteria:
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 $9,000).
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.
