The National and International Scholarships Program http://www.topscholars.illinois.edu/ serves high achievers from all colleges and majors by encouraging and assisting students in applying for prestigious scholarships. Many Chancellor’s Scholars have utilized this campus resource. Students may apply for some scholarships as early as their sophomore year. While many other awards are for study, work, or research after graduation, the time to start planning for these applications is now. The session will outline a variety of awards for future academics, environmentalists, public servants, activists, teachers, and leaders from any conceivable field; and provide tips on how to prepare for these opportunities while making the most of a student’s time at the University of Illinois.
