Lloyd and Mary Watkins Endowed Communication Studies Scholarship Fund
The Lloyd and Mary Watkins Endowed Communication Studies Scholarship was originally established in 1988 by a gift from Champion Federal Savings & Loan to honor former President and First Lady Lloyd and Mary Watkins. Lloyd served as president of Illinois State University from 1977 to 1988. The purpose of this fund is to support scholarships in the School of Communication and will be used as financial support to undergraduate students majoring in communication studies. Candidate selection is based not only on academic merit but also includes personal success skills such as: initiative, creativity, ethical leadership, and a commitment to improving the lives of others through the expert application of communication.
