Daisy Powell Awards

Two Daisy Powell Memorial Scholarships - one for a female and one for a male - are awarded each year to an undergraduate student majoring in Political Science. The scholarship was established in 1967 in memory of Daisy Powell, wife of the late Illinois legislator and Secretary of State Paul Powell.

Recipients of the scholarship are to be selected on the basis of financial need and potential for success in the study or practice of politics.
