Scholarships and Awards

Each year, ECE presents thousands of dollars in scholarships and award money to outstanding undergraduates. The department awarded nearly $840,000 in student scholarships, fellowships, and awards to undergraduate and graduate students in 2016-17. These awards are made possible by generous donations from our alumni, friends, and corporate partners. Almost all of these awards are made on the basis of grades and extracurricular activities at Illinois.
