Scholarship Information

The Twin Cities Illini Club offers a $1,000 scholarship to an incoming UIUC first-year student from Minnesota. Our goal is to offer a scholarship annually going forward, but the award is contingent on sufficient donations and funding.

The recipient is recognized for an outstanding high school career, including but not limited to academic excellence and extracurricular participation.

If you're a student who has chosen Illinois and would like to apply, applications for the upcoming fall scholarship are due in May. The recipient will be notified in early June and recognized at a student and alumni activity later in the summer.
