Jules D. Falzer Memorial ScholarshipEstablished 1993
These scholarships are given in memory of Mr. Jules D. Falzer, a 1960 graduate of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He worked for ITT - Avionics in Nutley, New Jersey as a Section Manager for the Support Systems Engineering Group for 26 years and retired in 1991. Mr. Falzer passed away in 1993.
The recipients must be juniors or seniors in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with an outstanding scholastic record. They must also be Illinois residents and U.S. Citizens.
In September the Department distributes scholarship data forms to students in the top 10% of the junior class and the top 10% of the senior class. The Scholarship Committee then reviews the scholarship data forms and identifies the students to receive the award.
The recipients receive scholarships up to $3000 and are recognized at the annual ECE Awards Banquet in the spring.
