Grant Information – District 54 Students

The Foundation proudly offers memorial scholarship grants for students in early childhood through seventh grade, which are funded, in part, through contributions received in honor of individuals who have passed away. This grant will be offered to the children of School District 54 to cultivate an academic, cultural or athletic interest to enrich student educational opportunities. Memorial grants will be limited to a maximum of $150 per recipient. The grants are intended for children from families facing extenuating financial circumstances.

Applications are available from each District 54 school or you can click on one of the links below. They must be completed by the student, signed by a parent or guardian and submitted to the child’s school by Monday, May 1, 2017. Applicants will be notified by May 12 whether they will receive a grant, so that the grants can be used to fund programs occurring in late spring or this summer.
