ISU Scholarship Fund

The DWB Dream Maker’s

Endowed Scholarship Fund

 The DWB Dream Maker’s Endowed Scholarship Fund was established in 2010 to support United States soldiers or veterans, including National Guard and Reservists, and their dependents who are majoring in business at Illinois State University. Preference is given to entrepreneurship majors and students studying abroad in France through one of the programs offered by the International Business Institute and the Office of International Studies on the campus of Illinois State University.

This scholarship was established to honor WWII Veteran David Brown and his wife, Willie Mae Brown. David served in the European Theater and participated in D-Day on June 6, 1944 at Utah Beach. He married Mae only three days before being drafted into the army.
