The 2020-21 Illinois State Scholars represent approximately the top 10% of high school seniors from 726 high schools across the state. Illinois State Scholars are chosen based on a combination of exemplary ACT or SAT test scores and sixth semester class rank. The 2020-21 designation applies to the year these students will begin their post-secondary education.
The Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC) is the state agency committed to helping make college accessible and affordable for Illinois families. This year, more than 17,500 honorees join the other top students who have been honored for their academic achievements since the designation was first introduced in 1958.
