Here's what you should know before applying for Department of Technology scholarships.
All scholarship documents (completed applications, ACT/SAT scores and transcripts) must be received by March 1 of each year. Successful scholarship recipients will typically be notified by the end of the spring semester or at the beginning of the summer break. Please return all scholarship documents to the Department of Technology, Campus Box 5100, Normal, IL 61790-5100.
Unless otherwise directed by the specific scholarship criteria, names and contact information of three references are required as part of the application. References should be able to attest to student's character, leadership, academic potential, and dependability.
First-year students must submit high school grades, official class rank, ACT/SAT scores, and have paid their enrollment deposit to be considered for a scholarship.
Minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 required unless otherwise stated in the scholarship criteria.
All scholarship awards are contingent upon full-time enrollment as a first major in the Department of Technology in the next fall semester.
All scholarship recipients are expected to attend the Department’s Annual Fall Scholarship Recognition event in September, send a letter of appreciation to the scholarship sponsor, and may also be asked to meet with the scholarship sponsor and/or participate in writing notes of appreciation to other donors who have contributed to scholarship funds over the past year.
Scholarship funding is a priority of Illinois State University and the Department of Technology. The scholarship values listed are the expected amount available to distribute. Scholarship award amounts are contingent upon the portfolio performance of the ISU Foundation and gifts from the friends and alumni of the Department of Technology. Scholarship yields from the ISU Foundation are dependent upon the economy and market conditions. It is possible that one or more of the listed scholarships will not be funded during this current academic year or that amounts may be less than indicated.
Make sure you have about one hour to complete the scholarship form. All departmental scholarships utilize the same application form.
Gather/prepare the following information:
Provide a personal statement of approximately 200 words describing your career goals and your involvement in high school, college, and/or community leadership and service activities.
You will need the names of three individuals who will serve as references for you. Provide the names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses for all references, then submit your application.
