B2SI, a non-profit organization that creates and supports educational opportunities that enrich the lives of Illinois children, will award $2,500 cash grants to college-bound Illinois high school seniors for their freshman year of study. The scholarships will be awarded based on each student’s academic achievement and financial need as well as their demonstrated leadership skills in both their school and community.
The application for the B2SI scholarship will be available starting today on Back 2 School Illinois’ website (www.b2si.org) and must be completed and postmarked by March 1, 2019. Applications must include the student’s essay, high school transcript, two letters of recommendation, and a brief summary from a community organization detailing the applicant’s involvement.
The scholarship awardees will be honored at Back 2 School Illinois’ annual fundraising dinner, held on May 2, 2019 at Galleria Marchetti.
