CS @ ILLINOIS is one of the nation's largest programs and is consistently top ranked. We are enjoying tremendous success with higher-than-ever student demand and talent, a faculty that produces some of the finest research in the field, and an alumni base that creates solutions for the world's most challenging computing tasks.
We are able to maintain our tradition of excellence in large part because of the private support we receive from our alumni and friends. Student scholarship and fellowship support, student-alumni networking and recruitment opportunities, and outreach activities are all significantly underwritten in part by gifts. That is why your gift makes such a difference - it is pooled together with gifts from other friends and alumni, leveraging the strength of our network to make a real impact on these high-priority areas.
Many employers sponsor a matching gift program that double, triple, or even quadruple their employees' charitable donations. See if your employer will match your gift.
