Student Enrichment Grants

Student Enrichment Grants


The Community Foundation offers a number of educational enrichment grants. Click any title in the list for more information and eligibility requirements. You may view application instructions and download forms where available.

Spring break and summer provide breaks from the regular school rigor, but it doesn’t necessarily mean relaxation from learning. Both can become times of significant experiential opportunities. Students can learn biology in Costa Rica or Africa, can attend a course at a college campus, or participate in a program in Europe. Some students may qualify and want to participate in these enrichment opportunities, but due to the cost of a program, cannot participate. By giving to an enrichment fund, your gift can assist many students in achieving their goals for summer or spring break enrichment.

Donate online to an enrichment fund or contact Carrie Summy, Philanthropic Advisor, 708-848-1560, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., to learn how you can support students in our community.

A number of college scholarships and professional development grants are also available.
