Udell Family Foundation Scholarship

Chuck and Ester Udell, through the Udell Family Foundation, award scholarships with preference for US Military Veterans. Udell Family Foundation makes sure their scholarship awards are “on top of” and do not diminish their GI Bill benefits.  This can include making the scholarship payment directly to the recipient if his or her other college costs are fully covered.

In 2021, one scholarship will be awarded.
