Four Ways to Partner
Nearly 150 colleges and universities across the country participate at Onsite and provide additional support to Scholars.
Civic Partners are members of the Chicagoland community and beyond that support our mission and believe in the unique strengths of our Scholars.
Corporate Partners invest in our city’s future leaders by providing career opportunities, engaging with our Scholars as they explore career paths, and offering financial support and volunteers to our organization.
Platinum College Partners
Colleges and universities who commit to our highest tier of partnership are considered Platinum Partners.
As Platinum Partners, the schools commit to the following:
Meeting 100% of demonstrated financial need through graduation for Scholars
Sponsoring a campus visit prior to an admitted Scholar confirming enrollment
Providing an on-campus liaison for Scholars
