East Village Youth Program Community Scholarship
Provided by: East Village Youth Program
The East Village Youth Program Community Scholarship is open to students who have graduated from an alternative high school or have obtained their GED. You must be a resident of Chicago and have a minimum 2.0 GPA for your last active term to be eligible for this renewable award. You must also demonstrate initiative and motivation toward achieving your college degree and the ability to overcome obstacles. Involvement in the East Village Youth Program is desirable, but currently EVYP core program students are not eligible for this award. With your application, you must also submit two letters of recommendation from non-family members and a personal narrative. An interview may also be required. If selected for this award, you must complete 30 hours of community service per year.
