Support Our Scholarships

Over the years, the SIUC Black Alumni Group has awarded thousands of dollars to help Black students succeed. BAG manages two scholarships to support current undergraduate students, and funds are primarily raised through the biennial BAG Reunion. Learn more about each of the scholarships here.
