Make a Gift to Engineering Visionary Scholarships

Our top giving priority for incoming undergraduate students is the Engineering Visionary Scholarship (EVS) Initiative. EVS attracts the best and brightest students and places a focus on highly qualified students from the State of Illinois. When you donate to EVS, you’re supporting students that set the standard for excellence and continuing the Illinois Engineering legacy.

Double your donation now thru December 31, 2019. The Grainger Matching Challenge will match donations up to $25 million to Engineering at Illinois’ undergraduate scholarship endowments.
