As part of its mission, IllinoisLLAA is committed to help and support current Latino students in their efforts to obtain a degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana.
For current students, the financial aspects of achieving this goal are becoming extremely challenging. For the 2016-17 academic year, the average total cost to attend the University of Illinois at Urbana campus is approximately $35,000! The average unmet financial need of students who attend the Urbana campus is approximately $10,000! Your donation to the IllinoisLLAA Scholarship Fund will help fund in perpetuity, annual scholarships to Latino students in financial need. Each year, part of the endowment’s average annual investment return goes to funding the annual scholarships. The remainder of the investment returns gets channeled back into the Fund so that it grows over time.
Since endowed funds are never spent, each gift designated to the IllinoisLLAA Scholarship Fund constitutes permanent financial support. So, please consider a tax-deductible contribution to the IllinoisLLAA Scholarship Fund. Your gift will leave a financial legacy that will support future Latino students who attend the University of Illinois to become the next generation of Latino professionals.
