The Janet and Allan Eddy Scholarship was established to annually provide a $1,000 scholarship to eligible Colorado State University employees who have made sustained progress toward attaining an undergraduate degree from Colorado State University.
Janet and Allan Eddy worked at Colorado State University over 30 years. They worked in a number of offices including Enrollment Services, Human Resources, the Music Department, Hartshorn Health Center and the Alumni Office.
They have encouraged family and fellow workers to continue their education as a way to prepare themselves for both work and home. As employees, Janet and Allan have seen some employees struggle to complete their education while they are working. Allan is a graduate of Colorado State University College of Business and their two daughters, Cheryl Ann and Sandra Lynn, are graduates of the College of Engineering. Janet coordinated the Colorado State University Alumni Marching Band for eleven seasons. Both Janet and Allan have been active with on-and off-campus programs supporting the elderly. They hope this scholarship will provide both the incentive to continue pursuing a degree as well as some meaningful monetary assistance to the person chosen. The scholarship will be awarded Spring 2016. Recipient must be enrolled at that time to receive the funds.
