2014-15 LAS Scholarship Guidelines

Each year, the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences awards nearly 20 scholarships to UIC students in good academic standing. Awards range from $400 to $10,000. Although many of the awards are need-based or restricted to LAS students, there are several awards open to applicants regardless of financial aid status or college affiliation.

The application period for 2014-15 scholarships has ended. Students will be notified by UIC email when the 2015-16 scholarship application period begins. The online application will remain closed until then.

Students must meet the following minimum requirements in order to be eligible to apply and receive an LAS scholarship:

  • registered for a minimum of 12 semester hours at UIC, unless otherwise stipulated;
  • enrolled in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at UIC, unless otherwise stipulated;
  • in good academic standing (minimum 2.0/4.0 GPA);
  • by the end of the application term, have completed a minimum of 30 semester hours at UIC, unless otherwise stipulated (first-term transfer students are not eligible).

Some scholarships have additional specific requirements. It is possible to be eligible for and to win more than one scholarship.
