The University Scholarship is one of the most prestigious merit-based scholarships available for freshmen through the Office of Admissions at Illinois State University. Each scholarship is valued at a minimum of $6,000 per year and is renewable for up to eight semesters providing participants enroll each semester full-time (12+ hours) and maintain a minimum 2.75 cumulative GPA at the completion of each academic year. The potential total value of the scholarship is $24,000.
University Scholars join a strong network of students, staff and faculty who serve as a unique and welcoming community of support. The major objectives of the community are to assist University Scholars in making successful transitions to the University, provide opportunities for academic enrichment, as well as personal and professional growth as they complete their undergraduate degree requirements. The program is administered by Targeted Retention Services in University College.
