Scholarship Purpose: In August 2009, Darrel Sutter made a gift to establish this endowed fund, providing support to students majoring in history-social studies education. Sutter grew up on a farm near Colfax and graduated from ISNU in 1960 with a degree in social science education and taught at Roanoke-Benson High School until 1995. Having to work many hours every week during college, it was difficult for him to focus on studies. It is his hope that this scholarship will free students from that worry. Each candidate must be accepted or enrolled in good standing as a full-time student, be a declared major in history-social sciences education in the Department of History, have completed at least two courses in sociology or economics, have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.75 / 4.0, complete an application and essay, and have demonstrated financial need. The funds are to be used for educational expenses. Assets of this endowment are invested in the Illinois State University Endowment Investment Pool.
