The Donna Markus Scholarship

In honor of Donna Markus, a longtime Sugar Grove Corn Boil volunteer, the Sugar Grove Corn Boil Committee is
proud to announce we are accepting applications for the Donna Markus Scholarship for 2017. Two student
scholarship awards in the amount of $500 each will be presented at the Corn Boil opening ceremony on Friday July 28, 2017.

We are seeking a specific type of student—individuals who are enthusiastic, love to volunteer, and have educational goals but are not necessarily
ranked at the top of their class. If this describes you we strongly encourage you to submit an application.

Scholarship Eligibility Requirements

We understand every circumstance is different but there are qualifications you must meet and rules that must be
followed to qualify. Specifically, the student must:

  • be a resident of Sugar Grove, Illinois
  • be a current library volunteer, Sugar Grove Corn Boil volunteer or other Sugar Grove 501(c)3 volunteer
  • be a senior in high school or enrolled in a college
  • have maintained at least a 2.0 GPA throughout his/her final two years in high school.
  • be accepted to (or currently enrolled) an accredited college/university or technical school to which the scholarship will be applied and plan to apply the scholarship to the upcoming school year.
