Illinois Scholarships

Largely because of Chicago, the state of Illinois might have the largest concentration of top-ranked universities in the country. Between the University of Chicago, Northwestern University and the many other four-year schools in the state, Illinois is a destination for education.

Tuition at these prestigious schools can be expensive, though, so you might want to consider looking for some Illinois scholarships to help you along.

Popular Illinois Scholarships

Some scholarships are very heavily tied to residency in the state. The Hansen-Furnas Foundation Scholarship, for example, is only available to students in a 12-mile area of Clarke County.

Others, like the Kankakee County Community Services Scholarship, are available to Illinois residents who demonstrate financial need.

Additionally, the many schools in the state like the University of Illinois or Loyola University – Chicago may also offer school-specific financial aid to residents and non-residents alike.

Applying for Illinois Scholarships

Academic requirements, residency restrictions, and financial need might all factor into eligibility for particular financial aid programs. Our scholarship directory will have more information on specific scholarships.
