The College of LAS' Lincoln Scholars Initiative

Supporting students' college dreams

In the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences, students develop expertise and leadership in an incredible array of fields. They develop the critical-thinking skills and flexibility demanded in a 21st-century global economy, and work with our exceptional faculty members to understand how interdisciplinary work can solve the world's challenges.

Few endeavors are more central to our mission as a land-grant institution than providing access to a liberal arts and sciences education for bright, accomplished students whose financial situation might prevent them from enrolling at Illinois.

With your help, the Lincoln Scholars Initiative will change this for LAS students.
