For All UIC Students: Scholarships & Resources

UIC has several offices that offer student aid and scholarships:

For Master's and Doctoral Students: Tuition Assistance via Fellowships, Waivers & Assistantships

Graduate students can apply for scholarships, grants, and graduate assistantships to cover all or part of tuition. Funding options will depend on the student’s degree program, as well as their academic and/or professional qualifications. The UIC Graduate College is a great source of information to start learning about the many funding and award opportunities for UIC graduate students. Please note that some of these opportunities are only for currently enrolled students, which means that if you have not been accepted to a program yet, you are not eligible to apply.

For Future Teachers: Tuition Assistance via Public Grants & Funding

Public funding is available to students who will serve after graduation as licensed teachers. Options include:
