Undergraduate Scholarships and Awards

Emma L. Marshall Scholarship

Established 2007


This scholarship was established by in honor of Emma Marshall, a long-time employee of the ECE Department. For the final 15 years of her career, Emma was on the alumni board and was the student relations coordinator for the ECE Department. This scholarship was created by the ECE Alumni Board to honor Emma at her retirement in March 2007.


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.

Selection Process:

In September the ECE Department distributes scholarship data forms to students in the top 15% of the Junior Class and the top 15% of the Senior Class. The Scholarship Committee then reviews the scholarship data forms and identifies the students to receive the award.


The scholarship carries a stipend of $1,000. The recipient is recognized at the annual ECE Awards Banquet in April.
