Mrs. Sylvia Footlik and her son, Robert B. Footlik (IE ’68) presented the award on behalf of the Irving M. and Sylvia Footlik Foundation at a recent luncheon. This award marks the sixth year of Footlik Scholarships for INTM students.

This endowed scholarship was established in memory of Mr. Irving M.

The scholarship is in place to benefit students who obtain practical training at a community college and transfer to IIT to pursue the Bachelor of Industrial Technology and Management (BINTM).
