In order to be considered for the HEAR Scholarship, all applicants must possess all of the following as a pre-requisite:
– An unweighted GPA of at or above 3.0;
– ACT scores of at or above 24 OR SAT scores of at or above 1160 out of 1610 or 1640 out of 2400;
– Demonstrated financial need;

– Reside and attend high school in the Chicagoland area;
– Must be a U.S. citizen
Only applicants who are going to attend a four-year course at an accredited institution of higher education will be considered.
The HEAR Scholar isn’t necessarily class valedictorian (though s/he can be!) We look for a good all-around student who is dedicated to his community, has a strong sense of service, and who demonstrates a strong work ethic across the board. Only students of the highest character will be considered.
All applicants who fulfill the minimum requirements laid out below are encouraged to apply.
The HEAR Scholarship Foundation does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, military status, or any other restricting classification in its selection of scholars.
