Michael David McGrath Scholarship Endowment Fund

(Established 2006)

Michael David McGrath

Patricia McGrath's Story


The Michael David McGrath Scholarship Endowment Fund was established to honor the memory and celebrate the life of Michael David McGrath (1977-2003).

The fund, which was created in 2006, became an endowment in 2013.

Michael was a graduate of Downers Grove North High School and made his living repairing and refurbishing computers. He was an intelligent and inquisitive young man of unlimited potential.

As an encouragement to future generations, this scholarship is intended for students who possess both the ability and desire to increase their knowledge in a chosen field of study.

This scholarship also is designed to provide opportunities for students with limited financial resources to enhance their skills and affirm their self-worth.

Michael was a multi-talented young man who frequently benefited from the kindness of others. This scholarship is offered to recognize and perpetuate those qualities.
