We’re celebrating Proof Point Day!


The Chicago Scholars team dressed up in green today to participate in ProofPoint Day – a day to celebrate first generation college students.

94% of Chicago Scholars are first in their families to go to college – our Scholars know what it means to be first generation and have experienced firsthand the transformative impact that graduating from college has on themselves, their families and their communities.

ProofPoint Day is a day to be visible and be vocal about being first generation.  Being first generation is a badge of honor – if you’re first generation or an ally, join us in celebrating being first!
