The Distinguished Young Women of Illinois Scholarship Program:

We are a statewide non-profit scholarship program that is part of the national Distinguished Young Women program.  We are the largest and oldest scholarship program for high school girls!  Since 1958, over $93 million in cash scholarships has been awarded to Distinguished Young Women participants!  In addition, more than 200 colleges and universities offer
scholarships, with more than $78 million in college-granted scholarships available to those who take part in a Distinguished Young Women program! 

There are no entry fees to participate, and this is NOT a beauty pageant!  The categories are: scholastic achievement (25%), personal interview (25%), self-expression (15%), talent (20%), and physical fitness as demonstrated through an aerobics routine (15%).  There are NO points for beauty, no crowns, and certainly no swimsuits!  We are focused on empowering young women and preparing them for college and careers.  One example of the type of woman who succeeds in our program is Diane Sawyer, our national winner in 1963!
