United Minds Inspiring Innovation Scholarship (UMII)
The UMII scholarship supports undocumented Illinois Tech undergraduate students who demonstrate financial need but do not qualify for federal aid (FAFSA). This scholarship is possible by the creation of a referendum by the Undocumented Student and Allies (USA) Illinois Tech student organization which was passed by the Student Government Organization on April 7, 2016. Funds are available through a $4.50 per semester opt-in fee and other private donations. Private donations are accepted all year round. To donate click here.
The UMII scholarship is open to students after their first semester. It is a one-time semester award and receipients must be enrolled for the awarding term. Scholarship amounts vary between $500 and $2,000 based on available funds. Approximately $20,000 were awarded among fourteen recipients during the 2016-2017 academic year.
