Jonathan Baldwin Turner Scholarship

A merit-based scholarship for incoming freshmen

For nearly 40 years, the College of ACES has awarded Jonathan Baldwin Turner (JBT) Scholarships to outstanding incoming freshmen.  Valued at up to $10,000 over four years, the JBT scholarship program recognizes students for their scholarly excellence, good citizenship, and demonstrated leadership attributes.

High school seniors with a composite ACT score of at least 29, SAT score of at least 1350 or a class ranking in the upper 10 percent (at the end of their junior year of high school) are eligible for consideration for this scholarship. 

If you are interested in being considered, the process is simple -  Apply for freshman admission as your application for admission to Illinois doubles as your application for all other scholarships in ACES, including the JBT!
