The University’s Student Alumni Council offers three $1,000 scholarships to sons and daughters of Illinois State graduates. The nonrenewable scholarships are made possible by a donation from the family of Marion H. Dean ’27 and contributions from the Student Alumni Council.

The scholarships help ease the strain of college expenses, reward an accomplished student and recognize legacy families for continuing the Illinois State tradition. Recipients are chosen based on scholastic achievement, leadership ability, service to community, parental influence in the decision to enroll at Illinois State and demonstrated potential as a future alumni leader.

The application deadline for the 2007-2008 academic year scholarships is Oct. 15. Applications are available online at Scholarships or can be requested by calling (309) 438-2586 or (800) 366-4478. For more information send an e-mail message to Alumni Relations Assistant Director Shanay Huerta ’03, M.S. ’05.
