Matt Cave, a senior and civil engineering major, hails from Batavia, IL, and recently accepted a full-time offer with Jacobs Engineering Group. Matt says, “This scholarship means the world to me because now I don’t have to take out a huge loan for my last year – giving me a financial head-start after I graduate.”

Nicolle Kain, a senior majoring in Marketing, Public Relations, and Strategic Communications from Beecher, IL,  is looking forward to graduating and starting her career. Nicolle says, “This scholarship not only helps me financially, but it also encourages me to continue to work hard in my studies.”
