UChicago Promise Scholarships

Organization & Scholarship Overview:
UChicago Promise honors those whose service to the City of Chicago allow our city to work and thrive. To recognize the importance of the public service that educators, firefighters, and police officers provide to allow both the city and the University community to flourish, the University of Chicago and UChicago Promise offer Chicago Public Schools Educators Awards and Chicago Police & Fire Scholarships each year to the children and dependents of those invaluable members of the community. In addition, UChicago Promise offers full–tuition scholarships to attend UChicago to select students in Chicago Public Schools.
