Eastern Illinois University celebrates its many partnerships with regional organizations who understand the value of higher education in east central Illinois. More importantly, these partners recognize the importance of keeping our Illinois students and graduates here at home, so they can continue to contribute personally and professionally to our hometown communities. To accomplish this vision, the partnerships these organizations have created with EIU allow the university to offer eligible EIU-bound individuals from several surrounding counties a $2,000 Community Ambassador Scholarship to attend Eastern. More information on the program is available here.
See below for a list of our Community Ambassador Scholarship partner organizations. Be sure to read their stories of contribution and visit their websites!
