In 2005, Bernard J. Brommel, Professor Emeritus, Communication, Media and Theatre, endowed $500,000 to the University, the largest single gift to NEIU in history (see; NEIU Alumni Magazine, Spring 2005).

The other six scholarships are given to three students in honors programs, one in political science, one in history, and one in the board of governors or university without walls program. All of the scholarships will be awarded to outstanding undergraduates at the junior level for completion of their senior year.


These 10 scholarships are not the first created by Dr. Brommel.

These two awards, one Distinguished Research Professor Award ($5,000) and one Scholarship for Doctoral Studies ($5,000) are awarded annually through the NEIU Office of Scholarships & Retention (OSR) Program.
