Hirsch Family Award 2022

Special Note for Applicants

  • This award provides a $1,000 scholarship for a continuing, full-time undergraduate student majoring in Biological Sciences, Biochemistry, Integrated Health Studies (Health and Science Concentration) or Neuroscience at UIC who displays academic excellence and has a minimum GPA of 3.50 or higher. Financial need will be a consideration, not a requirement.
  • If you are selected as the award recipient, all funds will be distributed through your student account during the 2022-2023 academic year unless you are a graduating senior. In order to receive this award, you must be enrolled. In addition, you should consult with your Financial Aid Counselor if you have questions about how this award may affect your financial aid.  All applications are due by April 1, 2022 by 11:59pm. For more information, contact mmeler@uic.edu.
  • In this application, you will be asked to upload your Financial Aid letter. This is optional and will not disqualify your application from consideration as some students do not receive financial aid. However, if you do receive financial aid, we suggest that you provide us with a complete description of how you finance your education.
