Students are selected based on a combination of exemplary ACT or SAT test scores and sixth semester class rank. Due to delays as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, 2021-22 Illinois state scholars were designated on April 12, 2021

Each Illinois State Scholar will receive a congratulatory letter and a certificate of achievement from the ISAC.
