Scholarships

We are home to over 800 PharmD students and over 150 Graduate and Post-doctoral students. They are a diverse group, but all have one characteristic in common – the passion to make a difference in the world.  With over 90 percent of our students coming to the UIC College of Pharmacy with substantial student debt ($100,000 0r more), we are more committed than ever to keeping the cost of their education affordable by doubling the number of our available scholarships before the end of our IGNITE Campaign.

The continued excellence of our college depends, in part, on attracting the nation’s most talented students. These students often choose their college based on its financial assistance.

  • Need-based, merit-based or both
  • Financial support for student tuition and fees
  • Other expenses, such as books, supplies, parking, transportation, childcare, scholarship administration expenses, room and board may be allowed.

Endowed Scholarships

Endowed funds are never spent. Instead, they’re invested. And it’s the earnings from these investments that go to help the programs you choose to support. That means each gift designated for endowment provides permanent financial support.

When you create an endowed fund, you give the endowment your name or the name of a person or organization you wish to honor.

In general, endowments are usually created for a specific purpose under a specific name, with a minimum amount required to establish a new endowment.
