Bob Zieba Memorial Scholarship Award

Mr. Zieba’s family, friends, and colleagues established this endowed scholarship in 2000. Mr. Zieba had a long career with the Illinois Department of Transportation as a field engineer and project implementation engineer. Mr. Zieba graduated from the University of Missouri at Rolla, but he had a strong connection with the University of Illinois. Karol and Bob Zieba’s sons are graduates of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (Matthew Zieba, BSCE 1998; Mark Zieba, BS 2000 applied life sciences). Mr. Zieba was active in his community of Carbondale, and particularly supportive of youth and athletics at Carbondale Community High School.

The student awards committee of the Department selects the scholarship recipient, with preference given to a Carbondale Community High School graduate.

The award will be given in two equal payments: one during the Fall semester and one during the Spring semester.
