David and Janet Philips Endowed Scholarship

The David and Janet Philips Endowed Scholarship was established in 1990 by Donald Philips in honor of his parents and their commitment and longstanding association with Eastern. David Philips taught in the English Department at Eastern for 28 years. He was well known for his storytelling and published Legendary Connecticut, a collection of folklore. He volunteered in many capacities in the Windham community. Janet Philips is remembered as a quiet leader. She worked in the Windham Town Hall for many years. She also volunteered her time and talents to numerous local organizations. The scholarship is awarded to an excellent student who is either an English major or a Theater major, with preference for a student who is majoring in both or heavily involved in both areas.
