Please consider encouraging deserving students from your institution to apply for the IMACC Memorial Fund Scholarship. Though the faculty’s responsibility in the process is deemed as recommender rather than nominator, it is still very much the hope and desire that faculty will initiate the scholarship application process by making their qualified students aware of the award, by writing those recommendation letters, and by encouraging and helping the qualified students with the application process. Complete information about the IMACC Memorial Fund Scholarship, including the Faculty Recommendation Form, Student Application Form, and an informational flyer to post on your campus, is provided by clicking on “Memorial Fund Scholarship” at the IMACC website, www.imacc.org. Please add your name and contact information to the flyer so that students can come to you with any questions about the application process!
Again, please encourage your deserving students to apply. For the applicant to be considered, the faculty recommendation form, the student application form, and the student’s supporting materials must be completed and received by the IMACC Memorial Fund Scholarship Committee Chairperson Angie Gum no later than March 1.
Here is a Memorial Fund flyer you can print and post at your school.
The IMACC Scholarship is awarded annually to a student attending an Illinois two-year or four-year college meeting all of the eligibility criteria stated below and selected by the IMACC Scholarship Committee. The scholarship is awarded in memory of James Armstrong, a University of Illinois Professor until his death. Mr. Armstrong was instrumental in establishing the Allerton Conferences and in fostering better relations between two-year and senior colleges.
The scholarship provides approximately $750 or more to the selected recipient to help defray the costs encountered at an institution of higher education. The money may be used for any qualified educational expense.
Students meeting all of the criteria may apply for the IMACC Scholarship. If, in the opinion of the Selection Committee, there is no bona fide candidate, the scholarship will not be awarded that year. The IMACC Board may elect at the spring meeting to carry over the funds to the next year. The decision of the Committee is final.
The deadline for receiving applications is March 1.
To apply, complete both the Faculty Recommendation Form and Student Application Form and mail the completed application forms and supporting documentation to Angie Gum, Memorial Fund Scholarship Chair.
