History of the Illinois PTA Lillian E. Glover Scholarship:
In 1935, the first state scholarship was established, as Illinois PTA voted to budget $300 annually for a
scholarship to be awarded at the University of Illinois.
Over the years, this single scholarship has evolved to encourage college-bound high school seniors,
entering the field of education or an education-related field at the college/university of their choice.
The Illinois PTA has provided more than $2,400,000 in scholarship monies to those seniors. Currently two
education scholarships throughout the state are awarded to help ensure qualified, certified education
professionals from every part of the state will be in elementary and secondary classrooms in the future.
