Eric McMillan Scholarship Fund

Eric McMillan Memorial Diversity Scholarship

On September 9, 2004, Eric McMillan, a U of I freshman in English composition, turned in his first assignment, a reflective essay. "Man in the Mirror". Ten days after Eric wrote "Man in the Mirror" he was dead, murdered. His essay and his example have inspired a lasting tribute to him: the Eric McMillan Memorial Diversity Scholarship. The Eric McMillan Scholarship Fund is supported by the Black/ African American Cultural Center (BAACC). The purpose of this fund is to attract, nurture, develop and promote a diverse academia and support students who demonstrate financial need. The Eric McMillan Scholarship is offered as a grant-in-aid to Black, African and African American students.
