Connor McFadden of Las Vegas, Nevada awarded a tuition and housing scholarship from the University of Illinois Springfield

Connor McFadden of Las Vegas, Nevada, a senior at Bishop Gorman High School, has been admitted to the University of Illinois Springfield for Fall Semester 2021 and awarded a Capital Scholars Honors Program tuition and housing scholarship. 

The scholarship will cover tuition (up to 16 credit hours a semester) and housing. It can be renewed for a total of four years if the student maintains college GPA requirements.

McFadden says he is choosing UIS for the “great combination of academic and athletic opportunities.” He will major in mathematical sciences and play on the men’s soccer team.

Following his bachelor’s degree, he plans to obtain a master’s degree in data analytics at UIS.
Capital Scholars Honors Program scholarships are competitive and are based on high school GPA. UIS is not requiring students to submit ACT/SAT scores for the 2021-24 academic years.

The Honors Program is a selective undergraduate program combining high standards and emphasis on excellence with a small residential college model, enrolling only about 100 first-year students each year. 

For more information on scholarships, contact the UIS Office of Financial Assistance at 217-206-6724 or finaid@uis.edu. For a full list of scholarship opportunities, visit uis.edu/financialaid/scholarships/
