The Thomas M. Eklund Endowed Scholarship

The Thomas M. Eklund Endowed was established in memory of Mr. Thomas M. Eklund, the College’s assistant dean for Academic Advisement, who was tragically killed by a drunk driver on March 26, 1994. In consultation with Mr. Eklund’s wife, the Thomas Edison State College Foundation determined that income from the endowment would be used to provide scholarship support to undergraduate students of Thomas Edison State College.  Eligible recipients must either be enrolled at the College or in the process of seeking enrollment. Established as a general scholarship, this award allows students with financial needs to take advantage of the College's credit earning methods.
