If you make a gift of $50 today, it will be invested in our 2016 and 2017 scholarship class of Illinois veterans, spouses and their children who can’t afford the gaps in tuition funding from the Post-9/11 GI Bill. Our repetitive scholarships, based on performance, help reduce student loan debt.
You are Making a Difference! Our 2015 and 2016 Scholars and their direct family members alone have served over 159 years in the U.S. Armed Forces and have served 42 post-9/11 deployments. Your I-PEF Scholars are representative of the diverse backgrounds of our Illinois military families, with women and minorities representing 41% of our current scholarship recipients.
