Our program administers nationally competitive awards for University of Illinois students and alumni. Opportunities include undergraduate and graduate study, research, and teaching—often in foreign countries. We also provide advice and feedback for candidates throughout the application process, helping you to become more competitive for scholarships.
Interested individuals—from freshmen to recent alumni—are encouraged to make an appointment to discuss these opportunities.
In late March and early April, the National and International Scholarship Program also will be hosting online information sessions for undergraduate students across colleges and fields to learn about some nationally competitive scholarship opportunities. We hope you will join us!
