Scholars Support

We believe higher education shapes a brighter future.

Assistance League of Chicagoland West is pleased to offer scholarships to students enrolled in a degree or certificate program at the College of DuPage.

Scholars Support awards scholarships to students in financial need. The program helps ease monetary burdens to encourage graduation, while increasing the availability of a skilled workforce able to meet local opportunities.

Estimates indicate that 60-70% of College of DuPage graduates live and work in DuPage County after receiving their degrees. By supporting these individuals while they are still students, Assistance League of Chicagoland West hopes to strengthen the larger local community in the future.

In addition to financial need, the selection process is based on academic merit and commitment to the student’s course of study. Candidates must live within the defined College of DuPage District 502.

We are pleased to announce that, in 2018, Scholars Support is the recipient of a grant from the Diermeier Family Foundation.
