FirstGen Flames Abroad Scholarship Info Session

Date / Time

February 11, 2022

12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Chancellor Michael Amiridis has graciously supported the launch of a new scholarship to encourage first-generation, first-year undergraduate students to study abroad. The Chancellor’s FirstGen Flames Abroad Scholarship is designed to award first-year students whose parent(s) did not complete a bachelor’s degree with a scholarship to study abroad. Students will find out during their first year at UIC if they have earned the scholarship and will have the remainder of their time at UIC to use the scholarship towards the costs of an approved UIC faculty-directed or exchange program. In addition to receiving a scholarship, FirstGen Flames Scholars will participate in a series of workshops as a cohort to learn about selecting a study abroad program, opportunities for additional funding, integrating study abroad into their academic major, and using international education to advance their career.

Join us at this information session to learn more about this unique study abroad scholarship and tips for applying. The information session will take place via Zoom on Feb. 11 from Noon to 1 p.m.

The application deadline is April 1, 2022. Visit the Study Abroad Office website here for more information.
