Chicago Urban League scholarships are now available to any person pursuing an undergraduate degree at an institution of higher learning to provide financial assistance for college. Scholarships are awarded up to $5,000. Applications are due by March 25, 2016.
Chicago Urban League Interim President and CEO Shari Runner, is pleased to announce the opportunity for students to apply for a scholarship to support achievement of their post-secondary educational goals.
Since 1916, the Chicago Urban League has been at the forefront of creating opportunities for African Americans to empower themselves and their communities. We are motivated by a vision that a strong African American community makes a better Chicago. Our Center for Student Development (formerly the Education Department) opens the doors of opportunity by giving students at the middle school, high school and college levels the skills, resources and confidence necessary to compete academically. The CUL Scholarship Program includes awards funded by various donors in order to support students needing financial assistance to begin, continue or complete their post-secondary education.
