Make a Difference for Liberal and Integrative Studies Students

Your gift in any amount to the funds below provide support for Liberal and Integrative Studies students (formerly Independent Option or INO). You can use the Donate button to give online.

Liberal and Integrative Studies Department Fund

This fund provides money for special opportunities or extraordinary needs.

  • Faculty and students can travel to a conference to present their research.
  • Faculty can take part in a special opportunity to update their skills. Professors need to be aware of the latest developments in their field, so that they can pass this knowledge on to their students.
  • The department can purchase special equipment, test materials, resources, or training modules to help our students attain success and achieve their goals.

These activities and others like them enrich our students immeasurably, enhancing the education they receive at UIS—but we could not do any of them without the discretionary money given to this fund.

Other Options

Not interested in any of the funds listed above? Then you can also create your own named scholarship fund that targets the students you specify in the Liberal and Integrative Studies Department. As the principle donor of this new scholarship, you would get to name the fund and establish the selection criteria.
