Lincoln Hall Project

Give Now

Your gift to the Lincoln Hall Fund for Scholarships will help create a permanent means of filling the gap between a family’s unmet financial need and the cost of an excellent education.

Through your support of this scholarship fund, you will be part of creating a new Gift for the Ages.

“The right to rise” was a philosophy embraced by Abraham Lincoln. At its core is the belief that talent resides at all income levels. It is this legacy we honor through the Lincoln Hall Fund for Scholarships.

Why I Gave

“It was Professor Yankwich’s intervention that allowed me to continue the education at Illinois. I am forever grateful to him for his standing up for me. I do not have a lot of money and cannot donate much. But I owe this to him and U of I.”

—John Hsu, MS ’68, PhD ’70, chemistry
