Scholarship funding is a priority of Illinois State University and the Department of Technology. Please be aware that scholarship award amounts are contingent upon the portfolio performance of the ISU Foundation and gifts from the friends and alumni of the Department of Technology. Scholarship yields from the ISU Foundation are dependent upon the economy and market conditions. It is therefore possible that one or more of the listed scholarships will not be funded during this current academic year.
