We are pleased to announce that the Honors College is able to offer a limited number of Honors Summer Housing Scholarships on a competitive basis. These housing scholarships will cover the cost of a double room in either TBH or MRH (apartment-style housing on the South Campus) for the period of the eight-week summer session (June 16-August 8, 2014). There are no regular dining services during the summer, so the housing scholarship recipients will need to provide for their own meals. In order to qualify, applicants must be engaged in either a UIC summer course(s) or faculty-supervised research on our campus.
To apply, please write a personal statement of up to 1 page (double spaced) in which you explain what you will be doing during the period of the 8-week summer session and its relevance for your academic or pre-professional goals. Please also attach supporting documentation. (For example, if you are taking a class, attach a copy of your enrollment verification. If you are doing faculty supervised research, attach the email or other agreement that verifies the arrangement (this could be an email already exchanged, or a short email for this specific purpose).) Feel free to include in your statement any additional personal or financial information that might be relevant to the Honors College when selecting those most deserving of a summer housing scholarship.
Hurry: applications are due immediately! Email the application to Associate Dean Sara Hall at firstname.lastname@example.org by 8 am on Monday, May 5th. Use the subject line: SUMMER HOUSING SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION.
This scholarship only covers housing and does NOT cover the cost of food, or tuition for enrollment in a course, or transportation to research sites, or research supplies, etc.
Students receiving this scholarship will be expected to give back to the community of the Honors College and UIC Summer College by helping welcome students and prepare welcoming materials on select dates in July and early August, barring conflicts with class and research schedules.
