Egan Hope Scholarship Application

YOU MUST BE AN INCOMING FRESHMAN FOR THE 2019-2020 ACADEMIC YEAR TO APPLY FOR THIS SCHOLARSHIP

The deadline for application submission online must be no later than February 01, 2019 11:59:59 PM Central Standard Time.

The Egan Hope Scholarship is awarded to incoming traditional freshmen students. The Egan Hope Scholarship Program was initiated in 1992 to honor Monsignor John Egan on the 50th anniversary of his ordination into the priesthood and his lifetime of social activism and community service. The program was developed in response to a need for initiatives that would enable inner-city students from Chicago to continue that work.

To be considered, you must prove residency within the City of Chicago, graduate from a City of Chicago high school, and demonstrate financial need. You must have an exceptional record of social activism, leadership, and community service. Recipients are required to commit to social activism, serve as a community leader, fulfill community service projects, and participate in events determined by Coordinators in the Office of Multicultural Student Success, including sessions with staff for advising, mentoring, and assessment. Egan scholars must be available for OMSS workshops on Fridays from 3PM-5PM.

As financial need is a consideration, we strongly encourage you to file the FAFSA, if applicable. The FAFSA can be filed as soon as possible after October 1st.

Please note that should you be a finalist for the Egan scholarship, you may be invited on campus to be interviewed on February 18, 2019.
