Josephinum Academy Named Partner School in City Colleges Star Scholarship Expansion
Through a partnership between City Colleges of Chicago and the Big Shoulders Fund, students from Josephinum Academy of the Sacred Heart who meet eligibility requirements now have the opportunity to apply for the Chicago Star Scholarship. The scholarship program, previously only available to Chicago Public School graduates, provides free tuition, books and transportation for high achieving students with at least a B average from low-income households to attend City Colleges for up to three years.
"We applaud the City's leadership and the Big Shoulders Fund for extending this valuable scholarship to our bright, ambitious students who have big dreams for their futures," said Patti Tuomey, Ed.D., President of Josephinum Academy. "Educating and empowering young women is our mission and the Chicago Star Scholarship will help make college accessible for those with limited financial means." See the video of this exciting event!
