SHARE WITH STUDENTS: This year’s Maurice Prize is open for application!

Please share with students:

UIC Student Affairs is pleased to announce the annual Maurice Prize Competition. The competition is intended to foster innovation, creativity, originality, ingenuity, and resourcefulness among undergraduate students at the University of Illinois at Chicago. These elements are achieved through students undertaking projects of their own choosing and executing a strategy to address their issue while applying their own knowledge, creative use of resources, and the ability to work with others to find solutions.

The individual winner or team demonstrating the deepest learning and problem solving receives a $6,000 award. For more information about the Maurice Prize Competition, eligibility details, and to obtain the Letter of Intent to participate in the competition, students must login on the UIC SnAP (campus-wide scholarship management system) at

Interested students are also encouraged to attend one of two informational sessions in the Student Leadership and Civic Engagement office located at 750 S. Halsted St., 390 Student Center East on:

Thursday, December 5, 2019, 1:00-2:00pm
