Chicago Scholars is creating a community that will shape Chicago’s future. Our work goes way beyond college admission — we’re building a new path forward.
Our Scholars and Alumni are our strongest advocates. Learn more about our programming from the people who know it best.
Invest in our Work
We can’t build a brighter future for Chicago without the financial investment of our community. Join the thousands of Chicagoans who said yes to tomorrow’s leaders!
Become a Mentor
Mentors provide guidance during Scholars’ first two years in the program — and often become lifelong friends. Learn more about the application process here.
Chicago Scholars holds several huge events every year, but we couldn’t pull them off without our volunteers. Learn how you can help out on these life-changing days here.
