Many different Illinois State University departments, offices, and organizations award scholarships each year. Much like scholarship processes outside the University, each individual scholarship provider decides how, when, and to whom their scholarships are awarded.
Illinois State awards highly competitive, merit-based scholarships to new students with exceptional academic talent. For best consideration for these awards, complete your application for admission during the preferred filing period. For more information on Admission scholarships, please contact the Office of Admissions at (309) 438-2181 or toll-free at (800) 366-2478 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
Many academic departments also award their own scholarships, usually based on a student’s major, background, or other criteria. You may al.so inquire with your academic advisor.
