The Helping Other’s Personal Excellence (HOPE) Scholarship Application for Spring 2022

The Helping Others’ Personal Excellence (H.O.P.E.) Scholarship provides funds for students who demonstrate financial need yet do not otherwise qualify for financial aid. Illinois Student Government and I-CAUSE created and implemented this scholarship in 2020. This scholarship fund—a commitment by students, for students— is intended to help alleviate some of the burden that comes with attaining higher education.

The deadline for the HOPE Scholarship is January 7th by 5:00 p.m. Undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in the Fall 2021 and/or Spring 2022 semesters are invited to apply. To receive full consideration, complete the HOPE application by the deadline date. Undergraduate students must also complete the Alternative Form (RISE ACT) by this deadline. Questions?
