The Black Alumni Scholarship

The Western Illinois University Black Alumni Committee Scholarship Award was established in 2007. The award is intended to provide financial assistance to deserving and qualified African American students enrolled full-time at Western Illinois University. It is still available for WIU students to apply! The deadline is August 1st and you can find the application here. Make sure you apply while you can!

June 2020

The Multicultural Center at WIU is highlighting two June national celebrations with virtual commemorations. The African-American community focused Juneteenth and LGBT*QA community focused Pride Month. Although the celebrations tend to give focus to a particular community, these are American celebrations by the diverse communities that comprise our nation.

With the LGBT*QA Resource Center at the forefront, Pride Month events are celebrated each April at WIU when the majority of students are on-campus.

We invite you to learn more about your fellow citizens and the struggles, obstacles and injustices that have been and continue to experience as well as join in the celebrations of the progress that has been made.

Together we move forward!
