#GivingTuesday is the perfect time to give thanks to our alumni and friends who make a difference in the lives of students at Illinois. The College of Media has already awarded scholarship assistance to 109 students this academic year. Scholarship gifts impact our ability to recruit and retain exceptional students and help offset the lack of state support.

To honor those donors who impact the Illinois experience, the College has established Gratitude Tuesday.

Each Tuesday, the College will share through social media a personal message of gratitude from one of our scholarship recipients. Their messages are inspiring and a testament to the importance of our alumni and friends. Connect with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram  to receive a weekly gratitude message from one of our students. Or, visit our Meet Our Students website throughout the year for a collection of posted messages.   

You can take part in #GivingTuesday by making a gift here. If you are interested in learning more about our scholarship program, please contact the College of Media Office of Advancement at (217) 244-5466 or media-giving@illinois.edu. Thank you!
