FEBRUARY Highlight: Engineering and the Chicago Engineers’ Foundation of the Union League Club (CEF) Student Incentive Award ($1,000 opportunity for students interested in the engineering field!)

Each month we will work to have a career professional speak to students during these sessions about their pathways to success. Students from all backgrounds are encouraged to attend, however students who are interested in that specific pathway are highly encouraged to attend to learn more! This month we are welcoming Dr. Erin L.D. Sibley who is an Engineer at the Mott MacDonald Chicago Office. She will be at the workshop all day and she’s looking forward to meeting with students who are looking to become engineers!

February Highlights also include:
– Fund II UNCF Stem Scholars Program
– Golden Apple Scholars of Illinois
– Ezekiel Taylor Scholarship Foundation
and more…


We look forward to having you with us!
