Hope Chicago Scholars
What We Do
Hope Chicago scholarships remove financial barriers for CPS students and families. Hope Scholars also receive wraparound support like advising and mentoring to help them achieve their desired degree or certification. Hope Chicago is doing this with support and investment from our partner colleges and universities, non-profit organizations, and our corporate and philanthropic donors who are working to see more students and parents have debt-free post-secondary success.
Hope Chicago Scholars Coordinator
Use a data-informed focus on equity to select partner Chicago high schools and communities needing post-secondary access and support – and offer all graduates and their parents a debt-free college or vocational education.
Engage new and existing direct service providers to provide Hope Scholars the non-financial support they need to pursue their postsecondary ambitions.
Rally a network of colleges, universities, and accredited vocational programs to provide a full suite of wraparound services and dedicated support that can help Hope Scholars complete their post-secondary path.
Deploy a community of corporate and philanthropic stakeholders making investments in Hope Scholars and their families, both with funding to help Hope Chicago grow and through internships and work placement opportunities for Hope Scholars.
