Up to $5,000 annually, renewable for a maximum of eight semesters or twelve quarters. Recipients must re-apply by completing the Minority Teachers of Illinois (MTI) Scholarship Program application each year. Note: Individual award amounts are subject to sufficient annual appropriations by the Illinois General Assembly and the Governor.
Varies, depending on the number of eligible students and the amount of available funding.
Applications are processed in date-received order. ISAC selects recipients from among the highest scoring qualified applicants on the basis of renewal applicant status and minority student status. Students are considered a renewal applicant if during the previous academic year he/she received funds from the program. ISAC works with the college to disburse funds for this program. The college certifies student eligibility and then submits a payment request on behalf of the student. It may take eight weeks or more after the date that ISAC processes the payment request before funds are received at the college. Recipients of this scholarship must agree to teach in Illinois. If this teaching commitment is not fulfilled, the scholarship converts to a loan, which must be repaid of the entire amount plus interest.
The application deadline date has not yet been finalized for this year, but is expected to remain the same as last year. The deadline date shown here is tentative based on last year's date. Please che ... sign up for full scholarship deadline information.
