Ursuline congratulates Megan Brueck ‘22 and Isabelle RingswaldEgan ‘22 who were awarded the Linda Vester '83 Ivy League Scholarship. This scholarship program was made possible through the generosity of Linda Vester Greenberg ‘83 and her husband, Glenn Greenberg.
This scholarship program was established in 2001 by Ms. Greenberg, a Fulbright Scholar and celebrated TV journalist, and Mr. Greenberg, a managing partner and founder of an investment advisory firm, to encourage qualified Ursuline students to attend Ivy League colleges. The idea came from Ms. Greenberg’s experiences as a student at Ursuline Academy when she learned how financially prohibitive it was for qualified students to attend Ivy League colleges.
The recipients are awarded $20,000 per year for four years of undergraduate Ivy League study. The Greenbergs hope that such scholarships will enable Ursuline graduates to attend Ivy League colleges that would otherwise be a challenge financially.
Megan Brueck will attend Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, where she will study Biomedical Engineering. Isabelle RingswaldEgan will attend Barnard College of Columbia University in New York City, New York, where she will study Anthropology.
