The Lorilyn Espique Aquino Fund was established to provide financial support to UIC undergraduate students who demonstrate co–curricular campus–level leadership and academic excellence at UIC. Special consideration is given to students studying a curriculum that will result in the application of environmental knowledge and , if possible, technology for the promotion, protection, and well-being of human and natural resources.
Two awards valued at $500 will be distributed during the fall 2017 semester of the 2017−2018 academic year. The award is one–year non–renewable.
The following criteria must be applicable at time of application and maintained during the term of the scholarship:
- Candidates must be full−time undergraduate students (enrolled at least 12 credit hours) throughout the award period.
