Major Scholarships and Fellowships
A strong academic record is a minimum requirement for becoming a candidate for a major scholarship or fellowship. In addition to an excellent academic record, you should have an outstanding record of service, leadership, research, or all of the above. These scholarships are extremely competitive. Each scholarship will require strong letters of recommendation by faculty members at SIUC to be competitive for these awards.
