TCF Bank Scholarship


In an effort to help communities become more vibrant and healthy, TCF Bank has partnered with UIC to create the TCF Bank Scholarships. This award has been established to provide financial support to undergraduate students who demonstrate a devotion to academic excellence.


Scholarships valued at $5000 will be awarded across the two semesters of the 2014–2015 academic year ($2500 during the fall 2014 and spring 2015 terms). The scholarship is one–year non–renewable.


The following criteria must be applicable at time of application and maintained during the term of the scholarship:

  • Must be a full–time junior or senior UIC undergraduate student (enrolled at least 12 credit hours) throughout the award period.
  • Students should show academic excellence with a cumulative GPA of 2.75 or better.
  • Senior students must have two full semesters to complete during the award period.
  • Candidates must have completed at least 60 credit hours; at least 24 of the credit hours must be at UIC.
  • Candidates must have financial need as demonstrated by the FAFSA. The 2014–2015 FAFSA must be on file in order to be considered for this award.
  • Candidates must be in good academic and disciplinary standing.


The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Scholarship selection committee will review applications for the above noted criteria.

Candidates will be asked to release academic records and financial aid records to the selection committee for the sole purpose of scholarship selection.
