Agricultural and Biological Engineering Visionary Scholarship Fund

Scholarships bring amazing engineers to Illinois.

In 2012, in partnership with The Grainger Foundation, we launched an ambitious initiative to raise $100 million in endowment support with a special emphasis on unrestricted scholarships. Our generous community of donors allowed us to reach that goal in 2020.

The Engineering Visionary Scholarship Initiative has paved the way for hundreds of deserving students every year. The Grainger Foundation and our network of donors made EVS students' dreams of becoming scientists and engineers a reality. As need continues, we invite you to support the ABE Visionary Scholarship fund.
