The ACACIA 915 Scholarship is supported by alumni of the Illinois Wesleyan University chapter of ACACIA fraternity. It provides financial aid to current undergraduates, and memorializes brothers who have passed to the chapter eternal.

The name of the scholarship has special meaning to many of the contributors because, for several decades, 915 was the address of the ACACIA chapter house on the southeast corner of North Main Street, where it intersects with Empire Street. The chapter house was lost to fire in the early 1980s.

The progress thermometer below was updated January 17, 2017.
