Robert Gregory Swedo was raised in Palatine, IL.  Greg attended Fremd High School,  earning academic honors as well as excelling in both basketball and soccer.  He studied finance at the University of Illinois

at Urbana-Champaign and was a member of the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity.  Following college, Greg worked at the Chicago Board of Options Exchange (CBOE) for Lakota Trading.  Greg was tragically killed in a hit and run accident in November 2000.

The R. Gregory Swedo Foundation was formed in 2002 to create a lasting tribute to Greg Swedo. The foundation will fund a scholarship honoring the schools Greg attended, Fremd High School and the University of Illinois.

The RGS foundation has awarded 8 scholarships since 2002. We look forward to awarding another winner next spring.
