Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Illinois

The Legacy Fellowship Fund for Graduate Students

Honor your Advisor, Leave a Legacy

The University of Illinois Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering has a rich history of legendary faculty who have inspired, challenged, and encouraged students for more than 100 years.

The Legacy Fellowship Fund is an opportunity to honor those who mentored you and motivated you in the lecture halls and laboratories of Illinois. It’s also an opportunity to celebrate your own accomplishments and leave your legacy at Illinois.

At a time of dwindling state support and rising costs of recruiting and retaining world-class faculty and maintaining top-notch facilities, your support of graduate education is critical to ensuring the tradition of excellence at Illinois continues. As federal funding for research becomes more uncertain, gifts from alumni and friends become more important than ever. Your financial support will sustain our outstanding research portfolio and maximize our global impact.

Competition for the best graduate students is fierce, and it is vital we bring the best to Illinois. Your investment will help provide them with the skills and tools they need to become leaders in industry and academia.

Contact us to learn more about the different ways to support the Legacy Fellowship Fund. We can work with individuals or groups of donors on how to best support this valuable campaign. You can contribute to the general fund for graduate fellowships, support a specific fellowship in honor of your advisor, or establish a fellowship in your name.
