About the Illinois State Scholar Program
To be eligible, a student must be a resident of Illinois and perform in the top one-half of their class (at the end of their junior year) and/or score in the 95th percentile on the ACT, SAT, or Prairie State Achievement Exam. Once all students who meet these criteria are identified, a formula based on standardized test scores and performance-based academic data is used to select State Scholars. While the prestigious recognition does not include a monetary award, recipients are encouraged to cite the award on college admission applications.
