Giving Overview

Give global and support transformative learning experiences, both on campus and abroad.

We offer several different options for giving, including supporting our core services and activities, making it possible for students to study abroad or study at Illinois, and providing emergency funds to international students in need. You may also choose to donate to a memorial fund that has been established in honor of a loved one or create a fund of your own. Please see the full list of giving options below.

2018 Fund Highlight

Enabled Abroad Scholarship Fund

Illinois is the #1 most disability friendly campus in the United States. Our commitment to inclusion and access on campus also extends to study abroad programming. Students with a physical or sensory disability often incur additional expenses while studying abroad, from equipment rental to securing on-site support. The intention of the Enabled Abroad Scholarship is to cover these types of expenses, ensuring that any Illinois undergraduate student with a physical or sensory disability who wishes to pursue a transformative experience abroad may do so.
