For Students: Resources

UIC’s goal is to give students a wide range of experiences that build skills for school and life, and to help students succeed in a challenging, exciting and diverse global community of scholars.

First-Year Initiatives Emergency Funding

The Office of First-Year Initiatives Emergency Fund is intended to alleviate financial burdens which may hinder academic progress and success; specifically for students involved in the Flames Leadership Network. Students who are in need of assistance will be asked to fill out the form completely and thoughtfully for fullest consideration. Students may request up to $500, but should request the bare minimum necessary, so as to reserve as much funding as possible for other students. This is a one time award.
