There are amazing opportunities to gain experience outside the classroom, but not all these experiences are paid. The FIG was created to encourage UIC students to take advantage of substantive experiences beyond UIC that are unpaid and offer excellent opportunities for learning and growth. The grant provides a stipend of up to $2500 over the course of a semester or the summer. (See below for additional financial aid implications.)
Please note that students need to have a position secured in order to be eligible for funding.
At the end of the application there will be a place to upload a resume and job description, as well as review additional information about the requirements of the program. The next step in the application process will be an employer verification. Please be sure to let your employer know that someone from the FIG program will be contacting them for additional information after you apply.
