Scholarship Description

The CSBG Scholarship is designed, in cooperation with the Illinois Department of Commerce and Community Affairs, to provide financial assistance to low-income and disadvantaged persons of high academic attainment or potential. Scholarships will go toward providing formal education or occupational training in an accredited Illinois educational institution to CSBG eligible clients, with particular consideration given to study in high technology areas or other growth occupations.
