Putting the Illinois experience within reach thanks to your support
As a new cohort of over 350 Illinois Promise Scholars began their journey in the fall, they joined an incredible network of continuing I-Promise Scholars across campus who were ready to show them the way. Thanks to your support, the undergraduate experience was made possible for over 260 graduates this year, and we are so proud to share their gratitude for the impact you’ve had.

As a first-generation college student, I had a lot of questions that my parents weren’t able to answer. I-Promise really supported and guided me throughout my college career by answering those questions.
