Scholarship Application...

Houston metro-area high school seniors who have been admitted to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are invited to apply for the Houston Illini Club's scholarship!

Each spring the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign's (UIUC's) Admissions Department provides the Houston Illini Club a list of all Houston area high school seniors who have been accepted to UIUC. In early April the Committee plans to send each such individual an e-mail with our congratulations of their acceptance to Illinois, and our encouragement to complete the club's scholarship application.


For 2022 the club voted in February to award a $2,000 merit/leadership based based scholarship. If you know any top high school students considering the University of Illinois as one of their college destinations please encourage them to apply!
