Blue and WhiteHave you made a Millikin Fund gift this fiscal year? If not, there's still time! Each year, Millikin awards nearly $30 million in scholarships to hundreds of talented students. Your contribution to The Millikin Fund helps support these vital student scholarships and help make their dreams of a college education a reality.

Last month, the Blue and White Student Scholarship Challenge met its two-day goal to raise $200,000 to help fund scholarships for Millikin students, thanks to the generosity of more than 300 alumni, friends, faculty and staff members. Although the initial “blitz” is over, donations to the challenge are still arriving daily and will be accepted through June 30, the end of MU's fiscal year. The current total is more than $250,000.

To make a gift, visit prior to midnight June 30, or if mailing your gift, it must be postmarked by June 30. Thanks for your support!
