Up to 15 Presidential Scholarships will be awarded to students who participate in Trustee Scholarship weekend. The Presidential Scholarship is valued at $80,000 for up to eight semesters of study at Illinois College. Winning the Presidential Scholarship replaces any other merit scholarships you may have been awarded by Illinois College.
The Presidential Scholarship is named in honor of the leadership and generosity of the thirteen men and women who have served as president of Illinois College. Many of the buildings around campus are named for these past presidents who have shaped the history and future of the College. Our current president, Dr. Axel Steuer, will be hosting the Presidential Reception on Friday evening as part of this special weekend.
