Students admitted to the CHP receive scholarships as indicated below. These scholarships are not advertised as merit-based scholarships student must apply and be admitted to the CHP, agreeing to participate in the undergraduate program before a scholarship is made available.
In-state students admitted to the CHP receive a scholarship each semester for their first year.
Out-of-state students admitted to the CHP may receive a scholarship in the form of a partial tuition waiver, covering some of the difference between out-of-state and in-state tuition at UIUC. However, only approximately 10 out-of-state scholarships are available each year. The waiver can be renewed for a second year if the student continues to participate in the CHP and meets all requirements for retention. The waiver is not available during the third or fourth year.
