Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Illinois

Self-nomination scholarship applications now available

The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering is pleased to announce it is now accepting nominations for departmental scholarships through February 2, 2018.

The department takes pride in its outstanding students and is pleased to reward undergraduates with scholarships made possible by our valued donors. To identify top scholarship candidates, the Awards and Scholarships Committee asks Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering faculty members to nominate students from their classrooms and laboratories. The committee will also identify eligible students and make selections according to donor specifications. In addition, chemical engineering students are invited to nominate themselves for scholarships through the self-nomination application process. Here’s a list of scholarships the department has awarded to ChBE undergraduates in previous years.
