Illinois Tech places a premium on experiential, hands-on, action-oriented learning. We believe this robust approach to education transforms our students into graduates who are uniquely equipped to create, solve, and innovate—people who will change the world.
Elevate is a hub that connects Illinois Tech students with hundreds of experiential learning opportunities offered at the university and beyond. These real-world experiences enrich students’ lives by exposing them to new ways of seeing, doing, working, and learning. Elevate experiences prepare students to succeed exceptionally as professionals—to lead, create, innovate, and think boldly—regardless of major or career path.
Illinois Tech supports selected students with awards of up to $5,000 for qualifying programs. For a listing of experiences offered through Elevate, visit our Elevate Experiences page.
PLEASE NOTE: The Elevate Scholarship cannot be combined with other Illinois Tech merit scholarships such as Duchossois, Camras, Crown, Collens, Leadership Academy, Chicago STAR, PTK, etc. If a student earns multiple Illinois Institute of Technology merit scholarships throughout the admission process, the university will award the highest merit award for which the student is qualified, but will not combine multiple awards.
