Grants & Scholarships

The Illini Dads Association is organized exclusively for charitable, educational and social purposes, specifically to provide support to its members and to students at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Since 1922, Illini Dads has donated more than $1 million in grants and scholarships benefitting our students and affecting generations. Each year, approximately $20,000 is donated through student scholarships and grants to student organizations.



Each year, several Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) affiliated with the University of Illinois receive one-time grants that range from $400 to $2,000 to organizations providing academic, social, personal, or professional assistance to students.



Illini Dads award several $2,000 scholarships to students who show both merit and need. This money is used to support students in pursuit of their academic goals. Scholarships are paid in January and credited to the Spring semester of that year.
