$15 million in support for endowed scholarships will make available nearly $1 million more in scholarship funding each year, allowing the College to recruit and retain 55 students.
Illinois College serves a dynamic and diverse student body, and applications for admission are at a record high. Many students who would thrive at IC are forced to go elsewhere because they cannot afford an Illinois College education.
While the College currently awards over $16 million in scholarships and aid each year, for the average family this covers just 58 percent of tuition. IC does not have the resources to meet student demand without your pledge.
Your investment in scholarships will grow enrollment by providing merit scholarships and access grants to students who will use the extraordinary experiences they receive at Illinois College to create meaningful careers and enriched lives.
