WIU President Jack Thomas

Thank you for considering a gift to the President's Scholarship Fund. Gifts to the fund have provided more than $500,000 in scholarship support for over 225 students. In contributing to the fund, you demonstrate your belief in our students and join other contributors in serving as a role model because of your generosity.

Western Illinois University remains committed to providing our students with exceptional educational opportunities. Your gift to the President's Scholarship Fund allows students to take full advantage of those opportunities and helps them finish what they started.

Thank you for your support and dedication to Western Illinois University.

 Jack Thomas, President

Amy ByersReceiving the President's Scholarship has lightened the load, allowing me to focus on my education rather than struggling to meet expenses. The scholarship opportunities provided to me at Western have allowed me to get involved in campus and departmental activities that complete my Western experience. Even though I may not have the opportunity to meet most of my supporters, I am forever grateful for their donations.
