Alumni Association scholarship deadline
The Illinois State Alumni Association and the groups that work in conjunction with the Alumni Association provide scholarship opportunities for current and future Redbirds of Illinois State University.
Alumni Association and Marian H. Dean Legacy Scholarships
- The Student Alumni Council/Marian H. Dean Legacy Scholarship and Donald L. and Marie E. Dillow Family Memorial Scholarship are awarded to a limited number of sons, daughters, siblings, or grandchildren of Illinois State University graduates as a way to ease strain of college expenses and recognize legacy families continuing the Illinois State tradition. The nonrenewable scholarship was made possible by a donation from the family of alumna Marian H. Dean ’27, ’29; the Dillow Family; and contributions from Student Alumni Council and the Illinois State Alumni Association.
- The Alumni Association Scholarship was made possible thanks to an initiative launched by the Alumni Association in 2009. The scholarship addresses the accessibility of undergraduate education to students who exhibit outstanding academic achievement and leadership, and who demonstrate a financial need. Additional consideration is given to students whose immediate family members have attended or graduate from Illinois State University.
Those interested in applying for either of these scholarships must complete an online application by November 15, 2018.
Please note: the above named scholarships and their application are not related to the similarly name legacy scholarship awarded by the Illinois State University Admissions Office.
Beginning with this year’s application process (2019-2020), new freshmen or transfer students who have a parent or grandparent that graduated from Illinois State will receive a $500 scholarship each year for up to four years. This scholarship does not require an additional application. For more information on this scholarship, contact the Office of Admissions.
