Signature Events

Large-scale events created exclusively for Illinois Promise Scholars.

  • New Scholar Orientation
    • All new Illinois Promise Scholars are REQUIRED to attend New Scholar Orientation (NSO).  At NSO, you’ll learn about what it’s like to be an Illinois Promise student; meet your Promise Coach; connect with peers; meet our student leadership group; get critical program information; learn about a number of campus resources; and find ways to get involved with the Illinois Promise community!
  • Re-Orientation
    • Each fall semester, continuing Scholars are REQUIRED to attend a Re-Orientation session.  Re-Orientation sets out to foster Scholars’ continued connection with the program through review of the scholarship’s renewal criteria and encouraging them to make the most of the experience by engaging in the many events and programs that I-Promise has to offer. 
  •  Spring Award Banquet
    • Each April, we gather Illinois Promise students, guests, and various stakeholders to celebrate the many accomplishments of our award-winning Scholars, mentors, and graduating seniors.
