Since 1991, the Nabor House Educational Foundation has worked to raise funds sufficient to support the scholarship program for the active chapter. The Educational Foundation is a charitable organization under IRS and Illinois Revenue regulations, making your donations fully tax deductible. To donate, contact Greg Stierwalt at firstname.lastname@example.org. Annually, the scholarship program awards the following scholarships to Nabor House men.
Keith Kelroy Memorial
A $250 scholarship to the first-year house member with the highest GPA. The scholarship was founded through the generosity of the Kelroy family in honor of Keith's memory.
Three $500 scholarships, one each for a member of the sophomore, junior, and senior classes. The Foundation selects winners based on an application and personal interview.
Dr. Ellery Knake Memorial
in 2010, Dr. Jerry Stoller, a Nabor House alumnus, provided funds to establish a new scholarship in memory of Dr. Ellery Knake, who was an alumnus of Nabor House and had a distinguished 30-year career as an agronomy professor at the University of Illinois. This scholarship is awarded annually to an oustanding member of Nabor House from any class who displays long-term career and educational goals worthy of this $2,000 award.
IDEAL Nabor Award
The IDEAL Nabor Scholarship Endowment Fund was started in 2020 with a generous contribution by Nabor House alumnus Rod Stoll. This fund has thus far secured a $1000 scholarship award to the active chapter member voted annually as the IDEAL Nabor.
Donations continue to be accepted from all Nabor alumni and friends to help grow the endowment for additional scholarship awards. Pease contact Rod Stoll or Greg Stierwalt if you are interested in becoming a fund contributor.
