Joan and Neil Styczynski have created this scholarship in support of the education community of Central Illinois through Illinois State University and Heartland Community College. With the scholarship, they are “paying back” for the generosity from which they benefited. It is their hope that the recipients of this scholarship will “pay it forward” in helping and affecting lives of young people in a positive way.
Each candidate for a Neil and Joan Styczynski Scholarship must meet 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 equal tuition for an academic year (30 hours) for each scholarship recipient.
