Help us select our new class of Scholars!

Interview Nights-01.png

We believe that an application can only tell us so much. The interview is a vital part of our selection process.

More than 2,100 academically talented, under-resourced, and first-generation college students from across Chicago have applied for the 675 spots available in our new class of Scholars.

During the month of March, we need your help to complete the selection process by serving as Volunteer Interviewers. As volunteers, you will meet and interview students who have demonstrated their talent and leadership skills through academic excellence and active involvement within their high schools and community.

No previous interview experience is necessary. You will be provided with training materials prior to the date and take part in an interviewer orientation session at your interview site.

Due to the popularity of this unique volunteer opportunity, interviewer space fills up quickly. Please click the button below to select your preferred date and host location.

The commitment is only one evening. The reward will transform Chicago.
