NIU Executive Club Increases Annual Scholarship Award By 50%

NIU Executive Club Increases Annual Scholarship Award By 50%










Dekalb, IL (PRWEB) March 23, 2011

Since establishing the scholarship in 1999, the NIU Executive Club has awarded nearly $ 100,000 in scholarship dollars to 17 exceptional NIU students. These significant scholarship awards have had a direct impact on the lives of the award recipients, who invariably go on to successful careers after graduating from NIU.

Monica Wallace, an attorney in the Health Law Department at Chicago-based McDermott, Will & Emery LLP in Chicago, was the first recipient of the NIU Executive Club scholarship in 1999. Today, she serves on the Executive Club’s Board of Directors, and mentors current Executive Club scholars.

“The level of support I received from the NIU Executive Club during my academic career was truly exceptional, and was instrumental to the success I have enjoyed in my career” Wallace said. “I gained opportunities for summer internships, participated in the club’s business and social activities, and met numerous accomplished alumni, many of whom I consider close friends today,” she added.

Michael Nicolas, President of the NIU Executive Club, said that the increase in the Executive Club Scholarship is a testament to the Club’s continued commitment to the academic success of NIU’s best and brightest students. “Since its inception, the Executive Club Scholarship has been our way of giving back to NIU by providing financial assistance to exceptional students. This significant increase in the Executive Club Scholarship is further proof of the Club’s commitment to our scholars, and to the University as a whole. We hope that our efforts serve as a shining example that Huskie pride is a lifelong commitment, which starts on campus and continues long after graduation.”

Funding for the Executive Club Scholarship is provided by the Club’s many activities, including its annual Scholarship Gala held in November. The Executive Club endowment is the second largest scholarship fund at NIU, and currently exceeds $ 582,000.
