Tuition Award

The UIC Women’s Leadership and Resource Center offers financial awards toward tuition* for undergraduate study at UIC.  The goal of this award is to support women students in their educational pursuits who have a great deal of financial need that is not being met by financial aid or loans.

We especially encourage applications from women who are members of marginalized groups, e.g., lesbian, bisexual, and transgender women; women of color; women with disabilities; undocumented students; veterans; and students returning to college to complete their education.

Students must meet the following qualifications:

  • Must be a full time undergraduate degree-seeking student who meets the requirements of UIC’s SAP 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 qualify for Illinois resident tuition.
  • Must complete the FAFSA and have financial need as determined by the FAFSA.

This award can only be applied toward tuition costs, excluding fees. For out-of-state students, the maximum tuition award will only cover the amount equivalent to in-state tuition.  The student will be responsible for the remaining balance.

The 2023-2024 application has now closed.

Please check back in fall 2024.

Congratulations to our Tuition Award recipients! Heading link
