Louise W. Saunders Endowment in Support of Continuing Education

“This opportunity provides support to individuals returning to college to pursue their bachelor’s or masters degree. The recipients of the awards will be chosen by a process established by a committee appointed by the Director of Student Financial Aid. Criteria for selection will be based on financial need, previous and/or current work experience and educational goals. Preference will be granted to non-traditional students returning to school to complete a bachelor’s degree, however, all students are encouraged to apply. All other factors being equal, the applicant who most exemplifies Louise Saunder’s belief in continuing education may receive preference.

The amount of the award will be determined by the amount of funds available and the earnings of the Louise Saunders Endowment. The scholarship may be used to help cover the educational costs of attending SIUE."
