The Redbird 5 Scholarship was established by Mark Burker '85, MS '87, Jeff Charnogorsky '85, Bob Freitag '84 and Tom Pfeiff '83 and in November, 2006, Larry Apfelbaum ISU '83 BS. The friendship these men built as students at ISU has continued long past graduation. Each credits ISU with providing a basis for the success he has enjoyed. Through the Redbird 5 Scholarship, Mark, Jeff, Bob, Tom and Larry seek to give back to the University that has given them so much. More importantly, the Redbird 5 Scholarship allows these men the opportunity to make a difference in the life of a current ISU student by providing financial support to a student who might otherwise be unable to obtain an ISU education.
