Scholarships are offered through the Illinois Central College Educational Foundation, a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization established to support the College. The mission of the Illinois Central College Educational Foundation is two-fold:
To assure access to higher education for our community – the Educational Foundation Scholarship Program seeks to ensure cost is not a barrier for individuals who seek a college education.
To enhance the quality of education offered by ICC – the Educational Foundation enhances the quality of instruction at ICC by funding faculty/staff development, technology and equipment, and special projects of the college.
Information about Foundation scholarships is available through the Financial Assistance Office, L211, or on the web at icc.edu/admissions/scholarships. Students can apply for scholarships via the website from October 1 through March 31 for the upcoming fall semester.
The Foundation accomplishes its mission by securing charitable contributions, forming partnerships with business and industry, and pursuing grant funding.
Special Academic Services
ICC Peoria, Arbor Hall • A102D • (309) 690-6881
Services are designed to assist career and technical education students in completing an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree or certificate program and enter the workforce immediately afterward. Financial assistance is available to purchase required books and supplies (students must meet financial need eligibility requirements). Financial support is also available to students enrolled in applied science programs that lead to a nontraditional career. Nontraditional careers are defined as occupations in which individuals from one gender comprise less than 25% of all the individuals employed in that occupation. Academic support services include study skills assistance, schedule planning, and tutoring for select programs at ICC.
