Description

Laurine Reiske Scholarship was a 1932 graduate of Illinois State University. After her death, her husband, John W. Reiske, created a fund in her name to provide scholarships for high-achieving students as a part of a bequest to the University. The College of Arts and Sciences received that estate gift in 2005.
