The Illinois State University Student Alumni Council offers three $1,000 scholarships to sons and daughters of Illinois State alumni. The non-renewable scholarships were made possible by a donation from the family of Marion H. Dean, Class of 1927, and continuous contributions from Student Alumni Council and the Illinois State University Alumni Association.

The purposes of the scholarship are to help ease the strain of college expenses, reward an accomplished student and recognize legacy families for continuing the Illinois State tradition.

Candidates for the Student Alumni Council/Marion H. Dean Legacy Scholarship must be enrolled at Illinois State University and be the sons or daughters of at least one Illinois State University graduate.

  • Applicants are limited to only freshmen enrolled for fall 2009 at Illinois State University
  • Must be a son or daughter of at least one Illinois State University graduate
  • GPA of 3.0 or higher
  • ACT of 24 or higher
