Select Program Funds
Engrave your name—or that of someone you wish to honor—on a paver, bench, theater chair, or even a room in Lincoln Hall. All proceeds support student scholarships!
Goal: $10 million. Your gift to the Lincoln Hall Fund for Scholarships will help create a permanent means of filling the gap between a family’s unmet financial need and the cost of an excellent education.
Shawna Morrison Memorial Scholarship Fund
The Morrison Memorial Scholarship will honor Sgt. Shawna Morrison (1978-2004), the first female student and soldier at the University of Illinois to die in combat operations in any war or conflict, by providing scholarship support to undergraduate students in the College of LAS. Sgt. Morrison was a psychology major at U of I and a member of the Illinois Army National Guard.
