As College of Education alumni, friends and donors, you are a part of a community united through a common purpose of advancing the field of education and supporting educator preparation at Illinois State.

On December 2, 2014, many of you joined the worldwide effort of Giving Tuesday by supporting the University through a gift,and we were humbled by this generosity; it truly exceeded our expectations.

We are also grateful for the many alumni, faculty and friends who have made transformational gifts to the College of Education. In 2014-2015, nearly $400,000
in scholarships were awarded to 129 well-deserving education students thanks to our generous scholarship donors.

We are excited to offer several new scholarships this year, including The Ferrell Family Endowed Scholarship for Professional Development School in the College of Education.
