Transfer Scholarship from the Illinois Association for College Admission Counseling-If you are a Illinois student and are planning to pursue higher education in Illinois, this scholarship may be for you.

The Illinois Association for College Admission Counseling (IACAC) is an organization of counseling professionals dedicated to serving students as they explore options and make choices about pursuing postsecondary education. IACAC members are counselors, admission or financial aid officers, active retirees, or students who are concerned about the future of education in the state of Illinois and in the nation. IACAC is committed to maintaining high standards which foster ethical and social responsibility among those involved in the transition process.

In an effort to support the IACAC Strategic Plan, the Transfer Advisory Committee will award two Spring 2022 scholarships (valued at $1,000 each) to community college students to further their education at a four-year IACAC member institution. Since our membership is constantly growing, Transfer Advisors that are IACAC members can search our directory to ensure that students are applying to other member institutions. Non-members and students can reach out to Linda Haffner to inquire about an institution’s membership.
