Who Does HEAR Serve?
HEAR Scholars come from over 110 high schools within the Chicagoland area. They attend over 65 different 4-year institutions of higher education within the United States and beyond.
They all have the qualifications and drive to attend and complete a college education, but lack the resources and mechanisms to ensure they succeed.
What Does HEAR’s College Success Program Provide?
- A renewable financial scholarship of $20,000, paid directly to the college over four years for tuition, room and board;
- A dedicated mentor for each scholar in HEAR’s Program;
- Workshops throughout the year, focussing on college and career-readiness;
- Advice and assistance with internships and a growing network of contacts;
- A family of scholars to help guide, support and encourage throughout the college journey.
