President's Award Program
High achieving newly admitted freshmen from several underrepresented groups are eligible for consideration for the PAP award. All applications are made through the regular admissions review process; once admitted, eligible students receive individual review for the PAP. PAP awards are available for a maximum of four years (eight semesters). Additional information is available via the Office of Degree Progress.
Other Institutional Scholarships
The University of Illinois at Chicago offers a range of different scholarship resources for incoming, transfer and continuing students. The OSFA does not award merit based scholarships. Some sources of scholarships are the Office of Special Scholarship Programs, the Scholarship Association for UIC and the specific college in which you are pursuing your degree.
Prospective Undergraduate Students
To be considered for most university scholarships and awards, incoming students need only complete the main UIC admission application; no additional steps are necessary. Your UIC application is then reviewed to determine which awards, if any, fit you. Students interested in applying to the Honors College, however, must complete an additional application for admission and consideration for their scholarships.
Transfer Undergraduate Students
Students who have transferred to UIC may be eligible for the Transfer Merit Tuition Award or Phi Theta Kappa Scholarship once they are enrolled at UIC. Membership in Phi Theta Kappa is required for that award. Eligible students are contacted during the fall semester with application and deadline information.
Continuing Undergraduate Students
Scholarships are available to students already taking classes at UIC from a range of different sources on campus and off campus organizations. The Office of Special Scholarship Programs maintains a comprehensive list of awards offered through UIC colleges, departments and organizations.
Current students and alumni with questions about or seeking support for applying for nationally competitive awards, such as the Goldwater, Truman, Fulbright, NSF, Gates Cambridge and NSEP, can find out more about those awards, including support services offered to applicants, by contacting the Office of Special Scholarship Programs.
