The Community Services Block Grant Scholarship is designed in cooperation with the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity to provide financial assistance to income eligible studies.
Scholarships will go toward providing formal education or occupational training in an accredited Illinois educational institution. Scholarships may be used for tuition and fees, textbooks, supplies, or room and board. Scholarship awards will be made directly to the college or university’s financial aid office for use by the student as needed.
This is a competitive scholarship based on merit, not solely on financial need. All qualified applicants are encouraged to apply by the deadline of 4:30PM on Friday, April 16, 2021. No late applications will be accepted.
Questions regarding the Scholarship Program should be directed to: Diane Alford, Kendall-Grundy Community Action at (815) 941-3262 or (630) 553-8024.
