Ackmann Family Scholarship

Established 2007


This scholarship was established by the Ackmann Family and is awarded to students in the top 10% of their class.


The recipient(s) must be a junior or senior in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with an outstanding scholastic record.

Selection Process:

In September the ECE Department distributes scholarship data forms to top junior and senior high school students. The Scholarship Committee then reviews the scholarship data forms and identifies the students to receive the award.


The recipient(s) will be recognized during an annual Student Awards Banquet. All student recipients are featured on the second floor of the ECE Building's Student Honors Wall.
