When & Where
Founded in 1996 as a scholarship-granting organization, Chicago Scholars has evolved into a one-of-its-kind, five-year mentoring and support program beginning in a student’s junior year of high school. Its mission is to provide talented, academically ambitious and underserved students from every high school and neighborhood in Chicago with access and success through college and beyond.
