LaHood Scholarships

The Institute sponsors the Ray and Kathy LaHood Scholarship for the Study of American Government, endowed through the Dirksen Congressional Center and awarded each year to select Bradley students entering their senior year who are studying US government and have at least a 3.75 GPA in their major and a 3.0 overall.

Recipients should emulate the kind of leadership shown by the public servants who have represented Illinois' 18th Congressional district including Abraham Lincoln, Everett Dirksen, Robert Michel and Ray LaHood.
