Undergraduate Scholarships and Awards

Ackmann Family Scholarship

Established 2007


The Ackmann Family Scholarship was established by the Ackmann family and is awarded to a student in the top 15% of his or her class.


The recipient  must be a junior or senior in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with an outstanding scholastic record.

Selection Process :

In September the ECE Department distributes scholarship data forms to students in the top 15% of the junior class and the top 15% of the senior class. The Scholarship Committee then reviews the scholarship data forms and identifies the students to receive the award.


The scholarship carries a stipend of $4,000. The recipient is recognized at the annual ECE Awards Banquet in April.
