As a member of the Chicago Aldermanic Black Caucus, I am thrilled to announce that the Chicago Aldermanic Black Caucus Foundation (CABCF) is hosting an annual scholarship soiree in addition to a raffle as a part of our annual fundraising campaign to support our scholarship program.
We have three (3) fantastic prizes that will be raffled off in support of the Foundation’s mission.
Tickets are $50 each, or you can purchase six (6) tickets for $250. Enter for your chance to win one of these exciting prizes online here.
The raffle drawing will take place at our annual Scholarship Soiree on June 19th. You do not need to be present to win.
Money raised from the raffle will support our efforts to increase access to higher education opportunities for Chicago’s black youth through our annual scholarship program. Each year, 12 young scholars are selected to receive a $2,500 scholarship annually for four years.
Our communities are strongest when we come together to support those in need. I look forward to your support.

Community College and Trade-School Scholarship Program
Students will also have the opportunity to apply for internships and jobs at PepsiCo. As part of that program, PepsiCo committed to hiring 40 new employees annually from Richard J. Daley College and Olive-Harvey College.
The program is comprised of two types of scholarships :
• The Uplift Scholarship for students seeking two-year associate degrees or trade certificates
• The S.M.I.L.E (Success Matters in Life & Education) Scholarship for community college graduates transitioning to four-year colleges
This program is a cornerstone initiative of PepsiCo’s more than $570 million commitment over the next five years to lift Black and Hispanic businesses and communities in the U.S. to address issues of inequality and create opportunity.
‘NEIU For You’ Scholarships
Northeastern Illinois University announced NEIU For You, a brand-new, one-time scholarship. The new scholarship covers tuition and mandatory fees for
a full year for incoming first-year, full-time undergraduates. Northeastern will also cover the cost of a three-credit-hour course for all new undergraduate
transfer students that register for six credit hours or more for Fall 2021.
“Access to education has become even more critical for our students at this unprecedented moment in history,” said Gloria J. Gibson, President of Northeastern Illinois University. “It’s also a critical moment for education institutions to do better at providing that access. Students need the opportunities education can offer, and the world needs their gifts, their skills, their passion, and their voice—now more than ever.”
The “NEIU For You” scholarships will cover the costs of 12 credit hours of tuition and mandatory fees for a student’s first year after all federal, state, institutional, internal/external scholarships and grants have been applied, which means a student can earn a four-year degree for the cost of three years. To be eligible for consideration, students must complete and submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at fafsa.gov. Undocumented students must complete the Alternative Application for Illinois Financial Aid instead of FAFSA. First-year students must also enroll and register for 12 credit hours per semester for the 2021-22 school year.
