CEAPS E-News: August 24th-28th, 2020

 
 
Welcome Back
 
 
 

CEAPS E-news resumes this week!

We are pleased to welcome everyone to the Fall 2020 semester. Whether you are back to campus in person or joining virtually from a distance, CEAPS is here to be a resource for you.

What’s new this year

We’ve re-designed and launched the new CEAPS website this summer. Please take a look and let us know if you have any feedback. If you are new to CEAPS, the website will be a good place to learn more about our mission, programs, and resources.

All CEAPS events will be presented virtually on Zoom this Fall. (See section below for a preview of our upcoming events.) Registration will be required to minimize potential disruptions during the event sessions. Most talks will be recorded and made available for viewing in the Illinois Media Space, accessible through CEAPS’ website.

CEAPS offices will remain closed to foot traffic and our staff will continue to work remotely until further notice. We are committed to serving the CEAPS community through virtual programming and ongoing grant initiatives in support of EA focused teaching, learning, and outreach. We will continue to bring you regular center updates, community happenings, and internal/external opportunities to help you stay informed and connected. We encourage everyone to reach out to us by email and welcome opportunities to collaborate with faculty, students, and departments.

Who to Contact at CEAPS

Have a safe and productive semester. We look forward to staying in touch and hope to see you at one of our upcoming events soon!

-- CEAPS Team

This is a need-based award, and to be eligible, you must be receiving a Federal Pell Grant.  

The National and International Scholarships Program will assist in reviewing your scholarship application material. In fact, we welcome the opportunity to help make your application more competitive!  To get you started, we are offering a two-day informational event about the Gilman Scholarship.
