Since inception in 1995 and including 2023 the scholarship fund will have provided $1,160,000 to 114 students. Thanks to your generosity, in 2023 there will be 16 scholars in school collectively receiving $80,000 in assistance.

Laurie Gustafson, chairman of the scholarship committee, announced the four new 2023 scholars, saying “It was such a pleasure for our committee to meet so many impressive students. Beyond excellent grades, their commitment to service was exemplary. We all feel optimism for the future with the quality of students who applied for these scholarships. The decision is very difficult as we see so many talented candidates.”

The goal of the Fund is to make the Scholarship fund self-sustaining, in order to continue to grant scholarships honoring the lifetime contributions of Ed Posh, Head Pro Emeritus of the Village Links of Glen Ellyn. Ed’s untiring work over his career helped our area youth learn critical life skills and personal responsibility. The scholarship program honors his achievements by helping meritorious but financially disadvantaged area youths meet the challenge of increasingly costly higher education.
