“Being honored with the scholarships from The Chicago Lighthouse had a huge impact on my education. When the cost of books and tuition seemed like they were climbing out of my reach, the Lighthouse stepped in and allowed me to focus all of my attention on finishing my last two years of school without having to wonder how I was going to pay for it.”
Chicago Lighthouse Scholarship Recipient
The Chicago Lighthouse Scholarship Program was established in the Spring of 2004 by a member of The Chicago Lighthouse Board of Directors. To date, over 150 students have received scholarships to pursue their dreams of a college education.
Scholarship money may be used for education-related expenses, including tuition, technology (such as computers and software), readers, books and classroom materials, housing, transportation, and any other educational items approved by the Scholarship Committee.
A review of the data acquired since the program’s inception reveals a stunning employment rate over double the national average for adults who are visually impaired or blind.
