DC Illini Scholarships


The Illinois Alumni Club of Greater Washington DC (DC Illini) offers scholarships each year to outstanding high school seniors from the Washington DC area who will be attending the University of Illinois. The funding for these scholarships comes entirely from donations made by the members of our local alumni club. 

All high school seniors who have been admitted into the University of Illinois and have a permanent address within the Greater Washington DC area (as defined by the U of I Office of Admissions and Records) are eligible to apply for these scholarships.


The University of Illinois selects and awards a $1,000 scholarship on behalf of the DC Illini to extremely qualified and deserving high school senior who has been admitted to the University of Illinois.  An additional $1,000 scholarship was awarded to the Illinois in Washington program.


If you are a prospective University of Illinois student from the National Capital Region, please contact our scholarship chair for more information.
