2016 Chancellors Scholarship Weekend

February 08, 2016

Last Friday and Saturday, February 5 and 6, more than 400 high-achieving high school seniors and their family members came on campus for the Chancellor’s and University Excellence Scholarship Interview Weekend. About 56 students and their family members visited the Transportation Education Center (TEC) Friday afternoon from 3:00pm to 5:00pm. These students have selected or will select one of our CASA programs as their area of study. SIU will award 25 Chancellor’s Scholarships which will cover tuition, fees, and room and board for four years; and will award a larger number of University Excellence Scholarships, which provide an $8,500 in awards per year for four years, or a total of $34,000.

Below are several photos from the event.
