Scholarship Luncheon

The annual Scholarship Luncheon is one of our favorite events at UIS. It is a time to celebrate the achievements of our students and the giving spirit of our donors. Our scholarship recipients are on their way to realizing their dreams, all thanks to our generous donors who believe our students are worthy of the scholarships they have gifted to UIS.

The University appreciates those who have already established a scholarship. We look forward to working with those interested in creating a fund to benefit even more UIS students. And we encourage students on the receiving end to consider, when they are financially secure, paying it forward by establishing their own scholarship to benefit the next generation of Prairie Stars. Contact the Division of Advancement to learn how to Invest in UIS.

“Scholarships encourage students to pursue their dreams by providing confidence through financial support. The generosity of donors allows us to support a diverse student population and attract bright minds to campus."

– Chancellor Janet L. Gooch

Congratulations to our Prairie Stars who were awarded a scholarship this academic year! We are thrilled to celebrate you, as well as the donors who make our scholarships possible. Together, our students and donors create exceptional educational opportunities.
