Since 1995 we have provided over $856,000 in scholarships to 97 Posh Scholars. In 2020 there will be 16 scholars in school collectively receiving $64,000 in assistance.

Deborah Burzynski, chairman of the scholarship committee, announced the four new 2020 scholars, saying “It was a pleasure meeting so many talented scholars. The decision each year is difficult as there are so many talented students.”

2020 Scholars:

Ella McLaren

Lazerick Smith

a senior from Glenbard West High School, will attend Hope College to pursue a degree in Civil Engineering.

Grace Wallner

The Ed Posh Scholarship Fund was established in honor of Ed Posh, the first head golf professional at the Village Links in Glen Ellyn, Illinois. Through the years, Ed has created an environment for golfers of all levels and ages to learn to play the game of golf.

The Scholarship raises funds through donations and fundraising activities like the Annual Posh Golf and Dinner event. 100% of the net proceeds of our fundraising activities go to the scholarship fund. Unfortunately due to the pandemic this year’s event has been postponed. The organizers and members of the board are all local volunteers. For our 2020 fundraising efforts, we have to rely on the generosity of our patrons and hope to raise the necessary funds through donations! To donate go to our website!
