Carus Creates Scholarships for STEM and Technical Careers for IVCC Students

We are excited to announce that Carus has created a pair of $4,000 scholarships for Illinois Valley Community College (IVCC) students. “As part of Carus’s continued support of educational initiatives in our community, we are proud to offer these unique scholarship opportunities to IVCC students pursuing a future in STEM and technical careers,” said Lyndsay Bliss, Vice President of Human Resources and Communications at Carus.

The “Carus LLC Future of STEM Scholarship” will benefit students in chemistry, engineering, environmental studies and industrial engineering technology, while the “Carus LLC Technical Career Advancement Scholarship” will aid students in industrial maintenance, manufacturing, technology and those planning to become electricians.

Recipients will receive $2,000 each semester, fully covering tuition for those taking up to 30 credits in an academic year. Award funds apply toward a student’s tuition and fees, books and related expenses.

Both scholarships will be awarded for the first time in fall. For information on IVCC Foundation scholarships, contact Fran Brolley at (815) 224-0465 or [email protected]
