What is HPSC? We are happy to explain...
The UIC Health Professions Student Council (HPSC) is a liaison organization between the individual health professions students, student groups, and the university at large. We appoint students to university and campus-wide committees to represent the interest of the health professional student body. Additionally, we fund the individual health professional student councils and provide additional funding to students for travel and interdisciplinary projects. In recent years, our student-ran organization has also provided a forum for interdisciplinary discourse through our Collaborative Healthcare Series.

HPSC has recently had an issue with students being unsure about submitting a grant application if their abstract is in the process of being accepted for an event.

Please be sure to contact the HPSC treasurer (hpscgrants@gmail.comBEFORE the quarterly deadline if this scenario applies to you. We will not accept late submissions that were past the deadline because the student was unsure about the status of his or her abstract.
