Chicago Scholars

Few people know that Chicago has almost as many college drop outs as college graduates. Chicago Scholars is working to dramatically improve the college graduation rate among Chicago’s first generation, low income and underserved youth by helping them match to good fit colleges, providing adult, peer and career mentors and by assisting them with financial aid through an innovative 5-year program, Launch. 95% of our scholars go on to earn their college degrees.
