The Illini Club of San Diego County awards scholarships to qualified students from San Diego County attending the University of Illinois. One or more scholarships may be awarded each year based on both academic and leadership achievement. Typical scholarships have been in the range of $1,000 to $1,500 each.
The Club's scholarship program is funded by donations from individuals, certain Club events throughout the year and an annual contribution from Players Sports Bar of 10% of receipts from Illini gamewatches. Your donations are greatly appreciated and will help local San Diego students enjoy the excellent education at the University of Illinois that we as Alumni Club members received ourselves.
Donors will receive an official tax receipt for their gifts to the University of Illinois. Gifts will be credited to the donor's record in the University, Foundation and Alumni Association donor database for recognition and acknowledgment of their total support to the University and its students. Donors can be assured their transactions will be handled securely with the upmost attention to ensuring their gifts will be spent for the scholarships they are supporting.
