The Elevating Futures Scholarship Fund’s mission is to aid qualified Chicago Public School students from low-income households in pursuing a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) four-year college degree.
This innovative partnership from the Chicago Transit Authority, Walsh-Fluor Design Build Team, and Chicago Scholars will provide college scholarships and mentoring supports, along with access to career development opportunities, to guide students in launching careers in the construction and engineering industries.
Eligible students must be enrolled in a CPS or CPS-supported high school and currently part of the Chicago Scholars program. Eligible students must also be enrolled in STEM coursework, have a GPA of at least 3.0, and a good attendance record.
