General Information

The Seattle Illini Club regularly offers a scholarship to an outstanding high school senior from the greater Seattle area who will be attending the University of Illinois OR to an existing U of I student from this area. The funding for this scholarship comes entirely from donations made by our members and club fundraising activities. We proudly present this award on behalf of the over 4,000 Illinois alumni in the Greater Seattle area. All high school seniors and current Illininois students who have been admitted and confirmed their intention to attend the University of Illinois and have a current address within the Greater Seattle area (as defined by the U of I Office of Admissions and Records) are eligible to apply for this scholarship. Scholarship applications will be sent out via email after the Seattle Illini Club has received the final list of students from our area that have advised the University they will be attending the following Fall. This time frame is generally April 1 - May 1, 2012. Completed email applications must be received by the club within 14 days after the applications were emailed to prospective students. The recipient of the scholarship will be notified by email. If recipient's schedule permits, a reception in his/her honor will be hosted by the club.  SELECTION CRITERIA: * School Activities* Community Activities* Leadership* Personal Statement* Reader JudgementPlease contact our Scholarship Director, Mel DeSart, with any questions.
