Donors hold the key to a lifetime of opportunities for students

Your gift to the Education at Illinois Scholarship Fund will make attending Illinois accessible and affordable; ensure we attract and retain the best students; help us recruit talented students from underrepresented backgrounds; and maintain a legacy of excellence.

The power of your gift to a student trying to attain a first-rate Education degree at Illinois is transformative. Here’s why:

  • Thirty-three percent of our undergraduate students have unmet financial needs
  • Enrolled students who receive scholarships are more likely to complete their education
  • State support is shrinking vastly—more than a 200 percent decrease since 1990
  • Freshmen offered scholarships are more likely to accept admission than students who are not offered funding
