We are pleased to announce that financial awards towards tuition* are being awarded for undergraduate study at UIC for the Spring 2016 academic semester. We at the Women’s Leadership and Resource Center want to recognize students that have made significant contributions to the movement against domestic violence and sexual assault throughout the UIC campus and/or Chicago community or who have triumphed over personal experiences within these areas. The goal of this award is to support women in their educational pursuits who have a great deal of financial need that is not being met by financial aid or loans.
We invite you to apply and to be considered for this tuition award. A student must meet the following qualifications:
- Must be a full time undergraduate degree seeking student who meets the requirements of UIC’s SAP policy. Please visit http://www.uic.edu/depts/financialaid/sap_policy.shtml for the details of this policy.
- Must not have completed their degree requirements for graduation or already have earned a Bachelor’s degree. Applicants must be continuing UIC undergraduate students who have attended UIC for at least one semester.
- Must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident and must qualify for Illinois resident tuition.
- Must complete the 2015-2016 FAFSA and have financial need as determined by the FAFSA.
- Applicants should have demonstrated both leadership and involvement in the movement against domestic violence and sexual assault throughout the UIC campus and/or Chicago community or have had personal experiences within these areas.
