Scholarship Purpose: The Edmund & Jane Endowed Scholarship Fund was created by Julie and Bob Dobski with the Illinois State University Foundation in the fall of 2010 to honor Bob's parents Edmund and Jane Dobski. Edmund and Jane started a family grocery business in Chicago in 1938. Their reputation for quality, fairness, hard work, and family spread and they eventually owned three grocery stores. Bob and his brothers, Tony and Tom, all worked in the stores and learned a work ethic that formed who they are today. The three brothers sold the grocery stores in1980 and pursued careers as owners of McDonald's franchises. Julie and Bob credit their successes from lessons they learned from Edmund and Jane. The purpose of this scholarship is to provide financial assistance for educational expenses to a College of Business major at Illinois State University. Endowment assets are invested in the Illinois State University Foundation's long-term investment pool.NOMAJOR NOLEVEL
