Carl and Maurice Cook Endowment


The Carl and Maurice Cook Scholarship Fund was established in 1999 through a bequest of Maurice Cook. He directed that a permanent scholarship fund be established in memory of his brother, Carl, and himself, both graduates of Illinois State Normal University. Maurice earned a degree in biology in 1934. The scholarship benefits students majoring in biology. Assets of this endowment are invested in the Illinois State University Endowment Investment Pool.
