Funding Needs

IMSA is a selective admissions residential academy for students gifted and talented in math and science. While we are an agency of the State of Illinois, we are publicly assisted, with no more than 75% of our budget coming from state tax dollars—and at about $20 million a year, our budget is smaller than any of our related agencies. A diversified funding stream is critical to innovation at IMSA and allows us to generate programs that benefit all of Illinois. IMSA does extensive work with students as early as 3rd grade and professional development with Illinois teachers, helping them become stronger math and science educators. Current field offices include Doolittle Elementary School in Chicago, and Lindenwood University in Belleville. The public/private partnership, a combination of funding from public dollars, businesses and foundations, families and individual creates the conditions “to ignite and nurture creative, ethical scientific minds that advance the human condition.”
