CUPPA Scholarship Awards

Delivering inspirational learning experiences for students and recognizing contributions by faculty to continued scholarship are among the core values of the College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs at UIC. One way CUPPA advances these values is through scholarship awards managed, administered or supported by the two academic departments and the nine college-based research centers.

UIC students are highly encouraged to learn more and pursue these opportunities.  Please contact the respective departments with questions or additional information or email cuppa@uic.edu.
