Applicants for a Lincoln Award/Illinois Scholarship must be residents of Illinois when they apply to Trinity. A student qualifies as a resident of Illinois if he or she lives in Illinois, even if attending a boarding school out of state. The reverse is not true. A student residing outside of Illinois is not eligible, even if attending high school in Illinois.

All Lincoln Award recipients will be notified by April 1.

To apply for a Lincoln Award, please provide all of the following information:

The Illinois Scholarship Program is sponsored by Scholarships for Illinois Residents, Inc., an endowed educational foundation associated with Trinity College, organized as an Illinois Not for Profit Corporation and operated by members who are Trinity graduates.
