Since its organization in 1996, the Fund has awarded over $1 million in college scholarships to deserving area students. In 2021 there will be 16 scholars in school collectively receiving $80,000 in assistance. Thank you for your generosity!
Deborah Burzynski, chairman of the scholarship committee, announced the four new 2021 scholars, saying “It was a pleasure meeting so many talented scholars. The decision is difficult as we see so many exceptional candidates apply for the scholarship.”
a senior from Glenbard West High School, will be attending the University of Illinois to pursue a degree in Photography and Photo Journalism.
a senior from Glenbard South High School, will attend Purdue University to pursue a degree in Geology and Planetary Science.
a senior from Glenbard North High School, plans to pursue a career in Psychology and Theater from the University of Illinois.
a senior at Glenbard West High School, will attend the University of Pennsylvania to study Nursing and become a Nurse Practitioner.
The goal of the Fund is to make the Scholarship program 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 disadvantaged area youths meet the challenge of increasingly costly higher education.
The Scholarship raises funds through donations and fundraising activities like the Annual Posh Golf and Dinner event. 100% of the net proceeds of our fundraising activities go to the scholarship fund. The pandemic has changed our 2021 event. On July 16, 2021 we hosted Sip and Say Hi to Meet the Scholars. The event included appetizers, a putting contest, raffle, silent and live auction and the scholarship introduction. The organizers and members of the board are all local volunteers. For our 2021 fundraising efforts we rely on the generosity of our patrons and hope to raise the necessary funds through donations! To donate go to the donation page of our website!
