LAS Scholarships

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences awards nearly 30 scholarships each year to UIC students in good academic standing. Awards range from $400 to a full year's tuition. Approximately half of the scholarships offered by LAS are financial need-based, while the other half of scholarships are merit-based. Many of the awards in LAS are restricted to LAS students; however, several scholarships offered by LAS are open to all UIC students regardless of college affiliation.

LAS is currently accepting online applications from current students for select 2015-16 scholarships! The online application period will run from March 18, 2015 to April 20, 2015 at 3:00 p.m. Please visit Apply Online for LAS Scholarships to apply and for information on available scholarships and required application materials.
