Scholarships for Economics Majors
The Economics program is proud to help financially support our students. The Thomas and Chany Chung Scholarship is given EACH semester to EACH Economics major carrying a 3.0+ GPA in all SIU coursework as well as in SIU's Economics courses. Everyone who qualifies receives the award. The amount of the award can vary but has run $1500 to $2000 per individual in recent semesters, totaling $10,500 to $14,000 across one's four years at SIU. (The scholarship is typically not given the first semester at SIU since no SIU GPA has been established at that point.) You don't even need to apply for the award! We will contact everyone who qualifies.
