NIU Business Scholarships


Rita C. Patti

In loving memory, this endowment is established by the Donor to recognize and honor the life of his wife, Rita C. Patti, to provide an opportunity to a student who might not be able to afford the cost of an education at NIU. Rita Patti, the living and dedicated matriarch of the family, was the pillar of strength for her family and her husband, Andrew, through every development and advancement of his career. It is Mr. Patti’s hope that this scholarship will help students achieve their goal of receiving an NIU College of Business degree.
