Neil Schanker Memorial Scholarship

Biology Scholarship established in Neil's Memory

Friends and colleagues have indicated a desire to establish a scholarship fund in Neil’s name that would provide funds to a College of the Siskiyous student who planned further study in biology.  This scholarship has now been established through a generous gift from Neil’s sister, Lynn Dreese, and her husband Pat.  We would like to continue to build the fund and invite you to contribute.  This will be an ongoing, endowed scholarship fund administered by the COS Foundation.  The amount awarded will initially be $1,000, subject to increase as the fund grows.  The scholarship will be awarded annually to a student who has been selected by the scholarship committee.  If you would like to contribute to Neil’s scholarship fund, please send your gift to: 

COS Foundation
Neil Schanker Memorial Scholarship
800 College Ave.
Weed, CA  96094

or take it to the Public Relations and Foundation Office on campus.  If you have questions about the scholarship, please contact Dawna Cozzalio in the PRO/Foundation Office at 938-5373.
