County, Illinois residents who are graduating high school seniors
who declare and pursue bachelor degrees in agriculture or nursing.
The scholarships are to be given in memory of Arthur B. Blaum and
Iva Mae Blaum. The yearly “award amount” shall be equivalent to the
cost of tuition for the upcoming school year (fall and spring) for a
full academic load at the University of Illinois, Champaign campus,
but it may be less considering the cost of the school chosen by the
student or other scholarships and awards received by the student.

year (typically the month of May or early June).
