Transfer Student Scholarship

The Transfer Student Scholarship at Illinois State is a highly competitive and prestigious award for incoming transfer students attending Illinois State University. The awards are valued at a minimum of $1,000; some are renewable for multiple years. The awards are based on academic merit and the competitiveness of the applicant pool, rather than on financial need.

Application Requirements

Application for this scholarship is by invitation only. Students must meet the minimum requirements below to be considered. This program is highly competitive and selective.

  • First-time student at Illinois State University beginning with the 2016 spring, summer, or fall semesters
  • Cumulative transfer grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale as calculated by the Office of Admissions at the time of application
  • Transfer a minimum of 30 college credit hours completed at another collegiate institution at the time of enrollment

Eligible candidates must submit the online scholarship application including a 500-word essay and an official transcript showing fall 2015 grades (if those grades are not reflected on the transcripts currently on file with the Office of Admissions) by Monday, April 4, 2016.

Invitations are emailed (to the email address you used to apply for admission) in mid-March to qualified candidates who have been admitted to the University; therefore, it is imperative that students apply for admission to Illinois State during the preferred filing period to ensure their admission in time for consideration for this scholarship.
