The University of Illinois College of Agriculture, Consumer, and Environmental Sciences is offering a new scholarship for the upcoming school year, and the local U of I extension is encouraging all seniors or students planning to transfer to the College of ACES at U of I to apply.
Amanda Cole is the Director of the U of I Extension District 18 serving Christian, Montgomery, Macoupin and Jersey Counties. She says two students from the District 18 area will win the $2,500 scholarship. Cole says if you plan on going into the College of ACES at U of I, there is no reason to not apply.
Cole encourages students who apply or just look into the scholarship to browse the other available scholarships. She says many dollars are left on the table because students don’t apply for the scholarships.
Cole says students should apply for the College of ACES scholarship through the Extension by December 1st.
