History

Mrs. Audrey Ulozas donated $25,000 in June, 2000 to the Campaign for a Rising Star to create the “Steven Petrosky Memorial Scholarship Fund”. The gift was fully matched by the F.W. Olin Foundation. The endowment was created as a memorial of Mr. and Mrs. Ulozas son, Steven Petrosky, (’93 graduate of Aeronautics) who died in an air crash at the age of 26. The recipients of the scholarship have always been full-time students enrolled in the College of Aeronautics.
