To be eligible, you must:
Students attending Illinois public high schools, who meet all eligibility requirements, will be considered for the State Scholar Program.In addition, students who are Illinois residents attending other high schools (located in Illinois, or elsewhere) with standards of instruction that are substantially equivalent to an Illinois public high school (as determined by the State Superintendent of Education) may also be considered. If such students list Illinois as their state of residence on the ACT and/or SAT assessment tests, they will receive a letter instructing them to work with the high school to provide ISAC with the necessary information. Students who do not list Illinois as their state of residence, but believe they may qualify for this program, should contact an ISAC College Zone Counselor to discuss their situation.
Department of Defense (DOD) High Schools are an example of other schools whose Illinois resident students may be considered for the State Scholar Program, because the State Superintendent of Education has determined that the standards of instruction at DOD schools are substantially equivalent to an Illinois public high school.Selection and Notification Process
Note that ISAC routinely updates this section as new information becomes available. Be sure to check back periodically for the current processing status.
For the 2010-11 Academic Year (last updated December 1, 2010):
During November 2010, qualified Illinois high school students were designated as 2011-12 State Scholars. Congratulatory letters from ISAC have been mailed to Scholars, and a Certificate of Achievement for each Scholar has been mailed to high schools. Typically, the Certificates are presented to Scholars during a high school honors ceremony, but they may be distributed based on the preferences of each high school.
A listing of all 2011-12 State Scholars - displayed alphabetically by high school, within each school's county - may be accessed via the "State Scholar Announcements" option that is located in the right margin of this page.
