IACAC Transfer Scholarship

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 one $500 scholarship to a community college student to further his/her education at a four-year IACAC member institution. This is a Spring 2019 scholarship; therefore, the recipient must enroll at a four-year institution as a new student for Spring 2019. The Fall 2019 Transfer Scholarship application will open in February 2019.

A separate set of $1,000 scholarships for graduating high school seniors is also available from IACAC.
