English Scholarships and Awards
In addition to the scholarships available University-wide, the English Department awarded over $50,000 in scholarships and awards to continuing students at our most recent awards ceremony. Currently enrolled students can apply for all English-specific scholarships with a single application, due at the end of January each year (the deadline for 2016 applications has passed, but you can still check out the simple application form). For more information, contact the chair of the Scholarships and Awards Committee, Prof. Stephen Swords. And you can check the EIU database to search for scholarships you might be eligible for University-wide.
