Five Chicago High Schools Given Free College Ride-And For A Parent, Too

This week, students at five Chicago Public Schools got the news that all their college tuition will be paid for along with room and board, books, fees, and taxes. Not only are these freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors getting the free ride, but also one of their parents or guardians. The multi-generation scholarship program is being launched by Hope Chicago, the nonprofit led by former Chicago Public Schools CEO Dr. Janice Jackson. HOPE Chicago has committed to raising $1 billion in support and funding over the next decade and has raised $40 million with funding partners that include several corporations, financial institutions, and private family foundations. HOPE Chicago scholarships will cover the total cost of attendance at any of 20 participating 2-and 4-year higher education institutions and industry certification programs. (GoodNewsNetwork)
