What's New with IllinoisLLAA
48% of the way there, help us cross the finish line!
In 2012, IllinoisLLAA launched our annual book scholarship to two deserving undergraduate students. This year, through expanded donations from members like you, LLAA awarded three undergraduates and one graduate student a $500 book scholarship each! We are happy to see the growth from inception to now and don’t want to see it stop. Come and meet our current and past scholarship recipients, CLICK HERE.
As you search for end of the year charitable giving, consider a donation to the LLAA book scholarship, currently on the site GoFundMe. At present, we are just over 48% of our way to funding the full scholarship for our students next year, will you help us reach our goal?
IllinoisLLAA is recognized as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, meaning any and all donations can be claimed as tax-exempt, charitable contributions.
On behalf of the entire LLAA family, we want to thank you in advance, wish you the happiest of holidays, and a joyous start to your new year.
After your donation, please be sure to share your donation on your Facebook and Twitter. Tag everyone and make it a contest within your own Illinois family!

Help Us Grow Next Year's Scholarships
We are pleased to be able to award four $500 book scholarships for this year, but we need to now raise funds for next year's scholarships.
Our goal is to raise $2,500 for these scholarships by December 10th. Your tax-deductible gift to the LLAA Book Scholarship Fund would help ease the financial stress that is common to many Latino students today.
Please donate and help support the next generation of Latino leaders who attend the University of Illinois.

Again, congrats to all our recipients and a very big thank you to all who helped make our scholarships possible.
