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.
