Edna R. Munro Scholarship

The Edna F. Munro Physical Education Scholarship is awarded to an undergraduate who has been accepted into the Physical Education/Teacher Education (PETE). Qualifications include an outstanding potential for teaching ability, cumulative GPA of 2.5 or better, and evidence of extra-curricular participation.

In 1928, Edna Munro was appointed as director of the Department of Physical Education for Women on the Bloomington campus. Later in 1946, Munro was named the first Chair of the Department of Physical Education for Women of the newly established School of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation which is now named the School of Public Health. This scholarship was made possible by proceeds from her estate and from special gifts from her sister Mary Munro who enjoyed following the activities of the School for many years.
