Camras Scholars Program

IIT's Camras Scholars Program is looking for who's next. Named for Marvin Camras (EE '40, M.S. '42), a pioneer in magnetic recording technology, Camras Scholars have solved age-old problems in structural engineering, developed novel methods for improving campus life, and increased the overall academic ethic and social ethic of their fellow students. The group's mission is to help its members achieve their personal and professional goals, while promoting excellence in groundbreaking and innovative research, social and entrepreneurial leadership, and service to the IIT community and the world as a whole. Of all students who apply to IIT, less than 1 percent are selected to be Camras Scholars.

The interprofessional spirit at IIT makes for more than just good engineers, scientists, architects, and others. It challenges our students to go beyond their fields of study and see the rest of the world — and the Camras Scholars are no exception.

Full tuition is awarded to the student the first year the Camras Scholarship goes into effect. The same amount is awarded each consecutive year and does not cover the cost of a tuition increase.
