Norma Lauder Scholarship Fund

The Class of 2012 established a scholarship fund as its class gift.  Named the Norma Lauder Scholarship Fund, its purpose is to provide financial support to future MS Tax students so that they, too, can pursue an MST.  The scholarship is designed so that each graduating class will select a recipient(s) from the incoming student body.  The long-term goal is to build the fund to an endowment level so that it will support two annual scholarships on an ongoing basis.

So that we can reach the goal of building and sustaining an endowment fund that will ensure the opportunity for qualified candidates to reap the benefits of an ILLINOIS MST, we hope that you will join other MS Tax Program Alumni, Faculty, Board of Advisors and Friends in making a tax-deductible contribution to the fund.  Providing this extra financial support to high caliber incoming students will strengthen the tax profession by enabling them to have the opportunity of becoming more complete tax professionals.

You can make your donation either online or by mail, as outlined below.  On behalf of the Illinois MS Tax Program and alums – Thank you!
