Barbara H. and Brian L. Renwick Electrical Engineering Scholarship

Established 2006


Barbara and Brian (BSEE '73, MS '75) Renwick provided funds for this scholarship to support outstanding students in ECE who are working in the power area.


The recipients must be juniors or seniors in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with an outstanding scholastic record. Recipients must be citizens of the United States. Preference is given to students in power engineering.

Selection Process:

In September the ECE Department distributes scholarship data forms to students in the top 15% of the junior class and the top 15% of the senior class. The Scholarship Committee then reviews the scholarship data forms and identifies the students to receive the award. Up to two students may be selected.


The recipient(s) will be recognized during an annual Student Awards Banquet. All student recipients are featured on the second floor of the ECE Building's Student Honors Wall.
