Donate to the
Mothers Memorial Scholarship Fund

The Mothers Memorial Scholarship Fund honors those who are or act as mothers to members of the NIU community. The scholarship offers an exciting option for creating a lasting memorial or recognition of the important women in our lives.

To donate to the scholarship, fill out the donor form and return it with your payment to (please put "MMSF" in the memo line if you are using a check): 

Women's Studies Program
Reavis Hall, Room 103
Northern Illinois University
DeKalb, Il 60115 

When the contributions honoring a particular individual total $1,000 or more, a brief biography of that woman will appear in all public materials describing the scholarships (including the Women’s Studies web site) and be read at the awards presentation. Individuals who contribute a minimum of $1000 will also be included in the annual NIU Foundation donors’ dinner and other recognition activities. Contributions of less than $1,000 recognizing a single person will be acknowledged by publication of that individual’s name in the list of women honored by the scholarship.
