Mary Lou Cowlishaw Scholarship for Lederman Scholars

The Mary Lou Cowlishaw Scholarship for Lederman Scholars honors a lifelong advocate for education. A North Central College adjunct professor of education for nearly a decade, Cowlishaw represented Naperville in the Illinois House of Representatives for almost 20 years, crafting the Chicago School Reform Act of 1995 and helping pass legislation aimed at assisting homeless students.

The prestigious Lederman Scholars Program enables top high school students to earn one or more years of college credit while attending high school at a reduced tuition rate. The Cowlishaw scholarship will cover the difference of that reduced cost for Lederman Scholars who attend classes at North Central.

Please join us in supporting these very special students by making an online gift to the Cowlishaw Scholarship.
