Kate Neal Kinley possessed a keen interest in music and performance throughout her life. As a young woman growing up in Ohio, she studied music, at the University of Illinois she helped to found the Alpha Chi Omega sorority in 1899 and served as an honorary member of the Champaign Art Club. Upon her death in 1931, David Kinley created the Kate Neal Kinley Memorial Fellowship to promote advanced study in the fine arts. This fellowship not only reflected President Kinley’s earlier appointment as dean of the College of Literature and Arts but, more importantly, acknowledged Kate Neal Kinley’s persistent dedication to the arts on the University of Illinois campus. The first award was made in 1932. Its continuance today is due to Kinley’s original gift and to the dedication of family members. The Kate Neal Kinley Memorial Fellowship is also partially funded by the John Robert Gregg Fund at Community Funds, Inc., and The New York Community Trust.. Fellowships are offered for graduates to pursue advanced study in the fine arts.
