Graduates from Illini Central may apply to help fund their college or technical school tuition by utilizing the Illini Central Student Loan Fund. The money made available to graduates from Illini Central High School through the Student Loan Fund is a loan. As such, the committee expects the applicant to make repayment of the money borrowed as soon after leaving school as is feasible. The prompt repayment of this loan will assure future students of Illini Central the same privilege to take advantage of this fund. There is a limit of $500.00 per semester with the total amount granted not to exceed $3000.00. The Student Loan Fund committee will be meeting to approve student loans for the Fall 2022 semester. Students that are interested in acquiring a loan need to submit an application by August 12, 2022. Applications may be picked up in the high school office or on the school website at under “For Students” on the high school page. Students must also submit a copy of their class schedule as proof of enrollment in college courses. Here is the link to the application on the IC website: Please contact Jennifer Durbin at Illini Central High School at (217) 482-5180 or with questions. #WeAreIC #BeJimmy
