The Mildred Maddux and Lisle Abbott Rose Scholarship in General Engineering

To two juniors in General Engineering recognizing outstanding academic accomplishment, extracurricular activities and cultural breadth.

Lisle Abbott Rose was a Professor of English who joined the College of Engineering at the University of Illinois in 1947, was promoted to full professor the same year, became Director of Engineering Information and Engineering Publications in 1951, and joined the Department of General Engineering in 1954. Jerry Dobrovolny’s History of the Department notes that he was a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, and was very active in the American Society for Engineering Education. Midred Maddux Rose met her husband when they were both studying English at the University of Chicago. In 1968 she became Director of Publications and Assistant to the Vice Chancellor of the University of Illinois in Chicago. From 1981 to 1983 she was appointed Special Assistant to the Head of the Department of General Engineering, and was Editor of the Alumni Newsletter and other publications of the Department. The Mildred Maddux and Lisle Abbott Rose Scholarship was established in 1995 by Mildred Maddux Rose, with the help of her good friends Bonnie Kelley, Jerry Dobrovolny, and others. The purpose of the award is to recognize outstanding General Engineering sophomores or juniors, and is based primarily upon scholarship and secondarily on activities and cultural breadth.
