LOOKING FOR SCHOLARSHIPS?

OSSP is here to help!

We have put together a comprehensive guide to best prepare you for your scholarship and award search.

If this is your first time visiting OSSP, we ask that you begin by viewing our Jumpstart presentation.

This presentation will introduce you to OSSP and will prepare you for the scholarship and award search.

Welcome

The Office of Special Scholarship Programs (OSSP) assists current UIC undergraduate and professional school students in searching and applying for nationally competitive scholarships, fellowships and external scholarship awards. We provide information about available awards, advice on application preparation, and assistance throughout the scholarship application process. We do not award scholarships, and our services are available to current UIC undergraduates and professional students only.

Graduate students: you may contact Marie Khan, Fellowships and Finanicial Aid Coordinator, Graduate College, for more information related to funding for your degree programs or visit this page on the Graduate College website.

We don't simply provide a list of awards. We help students present themselves clearly and effectively for awards that best suit their needs. Our director, Beth Powers, can offer guidance on communication about academic achievement, co-curricular involvement, life experiences and financial need. Students are welcome at any point in their degree program, and are encouraged to plan ahead to prepare the strongest possible scholarship applications.

OUR SERVICES ARE ONLY FOR STUDENTS AT
THE UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS AT CHICAGO (UIC)

Good news! While most of you are off enjoying your summers, OSSP staff will be hard at work redesigning our website! We are working on a new and updated design that is not only user friendly, but also blends in well with UIC's new look and we want to know what you'd like to see.

we value your input and hope to make a site that is as helpful as it is welcoming.
