The Onsite is an admissions program connecting over 175 selective to highly selective colleges from across the nation to Chicago’s most talented youth in one day. These emerging young leaders interview with up to six best match-fit colleges of their choice with many receiving college admissions decisions and merit aid scholarships that day. Last year more than $57 million was awarded at the Onsite in one day.
The Scholars College Fair is a collaborative event co-hosted by Illinois Tech Global Leaders, UChicago Collegiate Scholars, and UIC. The fair often serves as Scholars’ first exposure to our Onsite partner schools and helps students begin to build their potential college lists.
