Archie M. and Eleanor Williamson Koon Scholarship

Students in their second or third year as undergraduate students are eligible for this scholarship. Recipients must be pursuing the study of nutrition in the Department of Applied Health Science.

Eleanor Williamson Koon attended Indiana University as a Home Economics major. In the 1980s, she and her husband established a bequest through the Indiana University Foundation to fund the Archie M. and Eleanor Williamson Koon Scholarship. Because the Department of Home Economics no longer existed as a major at IU Bloomington, the Koon’s requested their gift support sophomore or junior students in the School of Public Health pursuing the study of nutrition. Mrs. Koon passed away in 1992 leaving this fund in her and her husband’s name that now benefits the School of Public Health.
