Illinois Institute Offers Fire Scholarships
Half-tuition scholarships to Illinois Institute of Technology valued at $162.50 a semester, or $325 a year, are being offered to Korean war veterans for the second semester of the 1952-53 academic year, starting Feb. 9 next, under the “Korean G. I. Bill” which became effective last July.
Tuition grants are for one year but may be renewed if the student’s academic performance is satisfactory, it is said. Scholarships may be used in any of the Institute’s three divisions: the division of Engineering which offers 14 curricula including the department of fire protection and safety engineering.
Illinois Institute is the only engineering school in the country offering a degree-granting curriculum in fire protection and safety engineering. Under the terms of the Korean G. I. Bill, veterans pay tuition out of their government allowances. The Illinois Institute scholarships reduce the amount of payments by one-half. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of previous academic records in high school or college, or on performance in Illinois Institute’s entrance examination.
Information on the scholarships may be obtained from the Illinois Tech Admissions Office, 3300 South Federal Street, Chicago 16, Ill.
