College Possible Chicago is thrilled to be the recipient of the Caerus Foundation’s Promise Scholarship grant. This grant will allow us to provide five to eight students, per year, with scholarships that will close their financial gaps. Our goal is to allow these scholars to attend more selective institutions to which they have already been accepted, helping to ensure that they have the best chance of earning their degree.
Despite having a team of coaches to assist students with securing financial aid and scholarships, College Possible students often find themselves facing daunting tuition gaps. Consequently, the undue financial burden placed on the student can prevent them from persisting through school. The Caerus Foundation’s Promise Scholarships will help to alleviate this burden and increase the chances for college persistence and ultimately, degree completion among our College Possible students.
The individual scholarships range from $5,000 to $10,000 per academic year and are based on the current financial needs of the student. As of today, seven of our College Possible Chicago students have received the Caerus Promise Scholarship, and we look forward to supporting them as they work toward their degrees.
