The Give It Forward Scholarship was established by Paul Halvorsen and, like Paul himself, the scholarship is small on frills and big on heart. It is a simple mission—but a grand vision. While most Giving Circles bring together donors connected by a shared affiliation or organization, the Give It Forward Scholarship is open to anyone and everyone who would like to participate as a donor. Current donors to the scholarship share only their respect for one another and their love for Illinois Wesleyan, and they would like nothing more than to add members in order to award additional funds in the future. The scholarship is awarded to students with financial need and an interest in serving others.
Goal: Fund as many $2,500 scholarships as we can each year.
