2017 Scholarship Program


Seven $1,500 scholarships will be awarded to graduating high school seniors this year.

Each year since 1989, the Scholarship Fund has awarded scholarships to graduating high school seniors to continue their education at Illinois colleges/universities. Six $1,500 scholarships were given in 2016, making a total of $286,500 that has been awarded to 172 students over the years.

TOI staff checks all applications for the required elements (letters of recommendation, academic transcript, etc.) before presenting the complete applications to the Board of Directors Education Committee. Committee members establish a ranking system, and each Committee member ranks every application. The top seven this year will then be offered scholarships.

The application for the 2017 TOI Scholarship program is now available online and in the January 2017 issue of the Township Perspective magazine. Applications must be mailed to the TOI office no later than March 1, 2017.  Please contact Amy Rourke at with any questions.*
