Deidre Eilers Scholarship

This scholarship was established in 2002 by the family, friends and former teachers of Deidre S. Eilers. The annual awardee(s) are selected by the department. Deidre R. Stofan came to Bradley in the fall of 1963 from the Cleveland, Ohio, area. She graduated with a degree in chemistry/teaching and earned the department’s prestigious Scheele Award for excellence in scholarship. She married James Eilers, a 1966 graduate of Bradley in chemistry. Deidre was deeply involved in community and university service; one of her true passions was finding homes for retired racing dogs.
