The Chicago Community Trust established the William J. Cook Scholarship Fund to assist male high school seniors from Cook County, Illinois who plan to continue their education in college programs. Renewable scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited four-year institution of the student's choice.
This scholarship program is administered by Scholarship Management Services®, a division of Scholarship America®. Scholarship Management Services is the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship and tuition reimbursement programs for corporations, foundations, associations and individuals. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, disability or national origin.
Applicants to the William J. Cook Scholarship Fund must be -
• Male high school seniors attending a high school in Cook County, Illinois, and
• Planning to enroll in a full-time* undergraduate course of study at an accredited four-year college or university.
• Full-time study is defined as full-time enrollment for the entire upcoming academic year.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award ranging from $1,000 to $5,000. Awards may be renewed for up to four additional years or until a bachelor's degree, or equivalent, is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance in a full-time course of study and continued financial need.
