Dunn Family Scholarship in Memory of Arthur R. Dunn
Bill Dunn earned his BS in 1986 and MS in 1987 in computer science from the University of Illinois. He established the Dunn Family Scholarship in honor of his father Arthur R. Dunn. The winners of this scholarship are chosen based on academic merit.
After a brief time at Bell Laboratories, Dunn started Dunn Systems in 1988 and continues to serve as president. The consulting company, now called Dunn Solutions Group, is located in Skokie, Illinois. In 2017, his generosity continued when he took advantage of the Grainger Matching Challenge which allowed him to multiply his scholarship gift. Through these gifts, Dunn wants to make an Illinois education easier to obtain.
