Lake Erie College Students Awarded Charles J. Stillwell Scholarship in partnership with the Cleveland Foundation


Two Lake Erie College students have been awarded the Charles J. Stillwell Scholarship, provided by the Cleveland Foundation for excellence in internships. 

Lake Erie College is pleased to award two Charles J. Stillwell scholarships, each $2,500, to undergraduate students who have completed an academic internship during the 2019-2020 academic year and have been recognized by their employers as having outstanding performance. 

Junior accounting major, Susana Chavez Gonzalez ‘21 and senior criminal justice and political science major, Johanna Moeller ‘20 have each been awarded a $2,500 scholarship for stellar performances in completing their internship placements. Gonzalez completed her internship at Zappitelli Financial Services and Moeller completed her internship in Washington D.C. at the Washington Internship Institute. 

At the beginning of each semester, the College’s Director of Career Development asks internship supervisor and internship faculty advisors for excellence in internship nominations.  At the fall and spring internship mid-term evaluations, all nominations were reviewed, shortlisted by faculty advisors and career development director, who then met with Financial Aid to award scholarship. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of outstanding academic performance in a cooperative education program or internship assignment.

Charles J. Stillwell became a member of the Fenn College board of trustees in 1927. Fenn College was since acquired by Cleveland State University. In 1946, he was elected chair of the board, an office that he held until 1960, when he was elected a life trustee. The Charles J. Stillwell Scholarship was established in the Combined Fund of the Cleveland Foundation upon his death in 1972. In May 1975, this fund was increased substantially by a gift from the trust of Edna D. Stillwell.
