Lincoln Scholars Initiative

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.

With your help, the Lincoln Scholars Initiative will allow bright students with financial need at attend Illinois.
