Scholarships

The Banks Foundation, Inc. is a nonprofit organization. Since 2020, The Banks Foundation, Inc. has been working with colleges and universities to offer scholarships. Through our program, the university receives funds from The Banks Foundation, Inc to choose a student that represents strong community involvement. The school then awards the scholarship directly to the student.

The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, Grainger College of Engineering hosts the National Day of Love® Endowment started by The Banks Foundation, Inc.'s founders, Charles and Diedre Banks. Charles and Diedre Banks started the endowment in 2021 to support students of the Morrill Engineering Program to receive valuable scholarship dollars. 

Help support the endowment today. Donate directly to the 
University of Illinois Morrill Engineering Program here. Want to learn more about the endowment first? Click here.
