The Illinois Engineering Initiative, formerly the Illinois Society of Professional Engineers Foundation, is awarding one $2000 scholarship to a student that is enrolled in an engineering program accredited by the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET) to attend an Illinois university.
Applicants must attend an Illinois university and be enrolled in an engineering program accredited by the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET) and be of at least Junior standing. (Unless otherwise defined by the applicant’s college or university, the applicant shall have earned not less than 60 semester hours credit by the application deadline date to be considered of junior standing for purposes of these awards.) Must have a B average or better in those courses which are accredited toward the engineering degree and show evidence of financial need.
In addition to completing the attached application and needs analysis, the candidate must submit official transcripts of all college and university work (sent under separate cover) and submit two letters of reference from the department chair or department faculty member or from a past employer or other character reference.
Candidates will be evaluated based on scholarship, financial need, activities, interest in engineering and the applicant’s
essay. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
