The Office of Financial Aid is always looking for new resources to serve students. One area that the office has greatly expanded is outside scholarship resources. Within the past year, the office has found and posted dozens of scholarship opportunities on our website (http://www.iit.edu/financial_aid/scholarships/). A scholarship channel was added to the Finances tab on the MyIIT portal with scholarship opportunities and deadlines. Finally, the office obtained several books full of outside scholarship opportunities. Each outside scholarship is handled by a different company or organization and will have different requirements to fulfill.
The Office of Financial Aid encourages all students to make time to search for outside funding. Extra scholarship funds can be a great way to reduce your bill or cut down on your loan debt. Please keep in mind that outside funds may impact your current financial aid package. If you are awarded an outside scholarship, feel free to stop by our office so we can give you the specifics on how your new award will impact your overall aid. As always, please let us know if you have questions about this process or your aid package. You can reach us at [email protected] or 312-567-7219.
