Dugan Family Scholarship Endowment Fund

Established 2002

The Dugan Family Scholarship was created to give recognition to the quality of education at West Aurora High School and to honor the academic achievements of both Dugan children.

These scholarships are awarded to students from West Aurora High School who have achieved the rank of 16 at the end of their 7th semester.

Two Dugan children graduated from West Aurora High School with over a 4.0 G.P.A. and both were ranked 16 at the end of the 7th semester.  They went on to graduate from college with honors.

The intent of these scholarships is to assist other students with the same opportunity to achieve success in college and in their lives.   Education is a priority in the Dugan family and they understand the need for scholarship support in view of the rising educational expenses.

The funding for the creation of these scholarships was made possible through the Estate of Eleanor E. Ayers, the Estate of Robert and Betty Harris, and the Dugan Family.

Created in 2002, the fund became an endowment in 2014.

…you can always start small, even $25 can make a difference. Remember we can’t take our money with us. Even if it’s just your gift of time. Volunteer and get involved.

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!

A community foundation is a donor-driven organization that helps donors custom-design funds that reflect their charitable interests. Through the years, grants from these funds have made a significant impact on our local communities.

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.

We chose the Community Foundation because of its reputation. It’s well known, established and we can trust them to do the job for us.

Being a part of the Community Foundation scholarship committee is the highlight of my year. For many, a scholarship from the Community Foundation is the reason they are able to continue reaching for their dreams and changing the future of our world. I hope each recipient knows just how inspirational they are to those of us who are lucky enough to read their stories.
