Undergraduate Scholarships and Awards

Donald R. and Arline D. Jeschke Scholarship


This scholarship was created in memory of Donald Jeschke (BSEE ’55), who met his wife, Arline, at Illinois. It is for Illinois residents who graduated from an Illinois high school, are studying electrical engineering, and demonstrate both academic merit and financial need. The Jeschkes have a strong belief in education and hope to allow students to achieve their goals with extra financial support.

This scholarship will consider both academic merit and demonstrated financial need.


Scholarship is for undergraduate students enrolled in ECE ILLINOIS who are Illinois residents, graduated from an Illinois high school, and are electrical engineering majors. The scholarship may be renewable if recipients maintain their academic merit and financial need.


The scholarship carries a stipend of $5,000. The recipient is recognized at the annual ECE Awards Banquet in April.
