How do I get the money?
At the end of the academic period, if the recipient maintains an overall equivalent of a 'C' average in all classes, then Illinois APCO will reimburse the student for all qualified expenses up to the maximum scholarship amount. Example...John is enrolled in the fall semester at U of I in Champaign. At the end of that semester John has an overall 'B' average. John can now submit up to $2,000 in receipts for tuition, books and/or lab fees. He can also ask for $1,000 in eligible expenses, and then carry the unused balance into the next academic period because the scholarship is good for a full twelve months from the date of the award. If John did not maintain at least a 'C' average then he could not claim any portion of his scholarship for that academic period.
