Chicago Scholars Now Accepting Applications for the 2021 Graduating Class

The Leading Youth Development Organization Seeking Chicago’s High School Juniors for the Set to Start in Spring 2022

Chicago Scholars has opened applications for students to join the program’s next graduating class. Academically ambitious first-generation or under-resourced students currently enrolled in their junior year of high school with plans to attend college in the fall of 2023 are encouraged to apply for the college preparation and success program.

Once admitted into the program, each scholar has access to a comprehensive support system and are guided through a specialized curriculum that outlines the college application process — each Scholar receives assistance with finding an institution that best fits their needs, gets support with developing college application materials, and attends workshops discussing how to navigate different aspects of the college experience. In October of their senior year of high school, scholars will also get the opportunity to participate in the organization’s flagship Onsite College and Leadership Forum.

Students will meet with representatives from some of the nation’s top universities at the forum, with many receiving letters of admissions and scholarships during the event. This year, participating students secured nearly 700 letters of admission and were awarded over $26 million in merit scholarships.
