ASPIRE - Fall Early Application and Campus Visit Program

ASPIRE will take place OCTOBER 2-3, 2016

ASPIRE is a diversity recruitment initiative designed to increase the pool of students from populations historically underrepresented in graduate programs at Illinois. This campus visit and early application program provides talented underrepresented students from across the nation with the opportunity to visit our campus early in the application process, while simultaneously allowing departments at Illinois to showcase the quality and strength of their programs. ASPIRE also offers an early round of the Graduate College Fellowship competition to participating departments.

If you have questions about the ASPIRE program, please contact the Graduate College Education Equity Program Office at or (217) 333-4860.
