Draper Hills Scholarship Fund 2023 Scholarship Recipients This fund was established by Eldon Hill on behalf of students at Loyal High School in Loyal, WI. Named in honor of the Draper and Hills families who played a vital role in shaping Eldon's youth, its purpose is to encourage high school students to maximize their talents and to help them benefit from further education after they graduate. It was inspired by a family friend who helped Eldon pay for his first two years at UW-Madison; her only request was that he one day pass his educational opportunity forward to a new generation of students. The Draper Hills Scholarship Fund is a fulfillment of that request. While academics are one of the factors considered in making the awards, the Draper Hills Scholarship Fund criteria were written to recognize the diversity of student talents; the Fund is primarily intended to support students who have maximized those talents and who are likely to benefit from post-secondary education. Future scholarship awards to students meeting these criteria will be reviewed annually and adjusted to account for rising tuition. Although Eldon passed away at the age of 102, his legacy of generosity will live on forever through this Fund.
