The Hilco Scholarship Program called “Hilco Scholars,” is now accepting applications at www.HilcoScholars.com for qualified candidates who are attending or planning to attend one of the City Colleges of Chicago. The application process runs now through May 2, 2021, and the scholarship will be awarded prior to start of the Fall 2021 semester.
The 2021 scholarship will be awarded to two students living in the Little Village neighborhood who are pursuing a degree in a skilled trade program at one of the seven City Colleges of Chicago.
