One of the hallmarks of an Illinois College education is the variety of opportunities offered to students for international study, research, campus leadership, athletic advancement and professional connections through the alumni network.
Every year, we award merit scholarships to incoming students who seem most likely to take advantage of these unique opportunities. Our Trustee Scholars have proven they can work hard and contribute to their community through service and leadership, and are chosen out of the strongest candidates in our applicant pool. Our Heritage Scholars represent the long-standing tradition of excellence in the liberal arts in the 38 counties that have historically been the foundation of the Illinois College community.
