Carle Illinois uses funding from institutional sources and philanthropic support to provide scholarship funding to a limited number of matriculating students to help defray the cost of medical school.
The scholarship subcommittee of the Admissions committee is charged with determining the metrics used to select and award scholarship funding to the incoming class of Carle Illinois students, on an annual basis.
The subcommittee uses a holistic review that looks at various factors. There is not a single defining characteristic that makes someone eligible for scholarships as the guidance and needs of Carle Illinois, Carle Health, and the Champaign-Urbana community changes yearly.
All students are considered for scholarship funding through their AMCAS and Carle Illinois secondary application so long as they complete the Free Application for Federal Student AID (FAFSA) using our school code of 001775.
To be eligible for other forms of aid, such as federal financial aid, students must complete the FAFSA as well Additional information regarding the financial aid process is available below.
